Wondering what goes on behind the scenes at our libraries? We created this video to show what goes into curbside library service at the Downtown library. This time-lapse represents just a portion of our busy days here. Yes, we are tired at the end of the day! But we are so happy to be back providing books, movies, and other library materials to our community.
Contact us to make an appointment for curbside service! You can place holds with your library card using our catalog. When you get an email that your holds are ready for pickup, give us a call at 415-485-3323 to make an appointment. You can also email us (email@example.com) or send us a chat (upper left corner of this page.) Curbside service is also available at the Pickleweed Library, no appointment needed. See you curbside!

There is still time to register for our Yayoi Kusama Talk and Activity with local artist and educator Rachel Palacios! But if you can’t make it (or want to get an early start!) the Yayoi Kusama Museum in Japan has created this super fun worksheet to discover and experiment with Kusama’s unique and bold art practice: Yayoi Kusama Museum Exploration Worksheet. Print the worksheet from home or, if you don’t have access to a printer, have fun looking at her art and reading about her on the museum website.
You read that right–Yayoi Kusama is such an important artist, she has her own museum dedicated just to her work and curation of artists and works related to and influenced by her! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about one of the most important living contemporary artists in the world!

Instituted by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month was established “to remind the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters.”
Usually, National Poetry Month is a time for poetry readings and celebratory activities around poetry and poetry writing. As we shelter in place, we’re bringing the celebration to you! We will be collecting video clips of poets, mostly local, who will read a poem for your reflection and enjoyment. Here is the link to the Poetry YouTube Playlist. Get inspired! See if you feel moved to write a poem of your own. Now, more than ever, we need poetry!
