Introduction to the Learning Bus

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 10/8/2019

Preview

Shortly after convening at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request to receive a presentation from the Marin County Free Library (MCFL) on the County’s acquisition of the new Learning Bus. After 18 years of use and 147,000 miles traveled, the MCFL mobile preschool unit, the FLAGship, is headed to retirement. In its place is the new 30-foot Learning Bus, which will make a public debut at an October 12 in San Rafael's Lagoon Park. The new acquisition is believed to be the first library outreach vehicle in the country with a parallel hybrid driveline system that not only reduces fuel consumption and carbon emissions but also directly powers all on-board systems including WiFi, air conditioning, lighting, and computer systems without any running engines.
