Welcome to Project Read at the San Mateo Public Library!

Project Read, the adult literacy program of the San Mateo Public Library, has provided free, confidential, literacy tutoring to adults since 1985.

Volunteer tutors work with adults who want to improve their basic reading and writing skills, enabling them to achieve personal learning goals, like reading a story to a child, voting for the first time, or completing a job application form. The program raises literacy levels—and the quality of life—in the City of San Mateo.

Project Read is the latest CLLS-funded program to join the community of adult literacy programs using the Impact Suite across California.
