Library Service Returns to District 11

Starting August 11th we will have library service back in District 11 at the Excelsior Branch. Thank you to all our neighbors who pushed for this and Mayor London Breed and Librarian Michael Lambert for working with us to make District 11 first!

Mayor London N. Breed and City Librarian Michael Lambert announced on Friday the launch of SFPL To Go, which will enable San Francisco Public Library cardholders to pick up and return their materials at select library locations throughout the City. The new program will roll out in phases with the first locations opening at the Main Library on Monday, August 10th and at the Excelsior Branch on Tuesday, August 11th.

“The San Francisco Public Library has significantly increased digital access to its collection during the COVID-19 health emergency, but I know that for many of us nothing replaces the feeling of holding and reading a physical book,” says Mayor Breed. “The launch of SFPL To Go will allow for pick-up and drop-off in a safe and convenient way, and will help provide greater access to resources for our youth who will need extra support to ensure that this academic year is a success. I want to recognize Library staff for their tremendous contributions to the City’s COVID-19 response efforts, from contact tracing to food distribution and community outreach, along with their continued commitment to keeping our Library operating and accessible to all our residents.”

Each location will operate under a City-approved Health and Safety Plan and will follow all masking and social distancing requirements and OCLC and Institute of Museum and Library Services’ strict guidelines for materials handling.

“Books are back!” says City Librarian Michael Lambert. “We are thrilled to launch SFPL To Go and to see all of our patrons again at our front doors. We thank everyone for their patience as we implement contact-free service throughout the City. As we look ahead, Library staff will continually reevaluate our operations and develop safety protocols for the next phases of service.”

Library patrons can request a book, DVD, audiobook, LP or any circulating library item for front door pick-up by going to sfpl.org and placing a hold through their library account; by emailing info@sfpl.org or by calling 415-557-4400. Once the item is ready, patrons will receive a notice for retrieval. Book drops will be open only at SFPL To Go locations during operating hours.


Family and Community Based Organization Survey to Assess District Needs Surrounding Distance Learning
As our schools plan on starting the year with distance learning we want to hear directly from families and organizations about the best way we can support your family and children during this time. Please take our survey (available in Spanish and Cantonese) so we can assess the needs of families in our District 

We will work hard with SFUSD, the Department of Children Youth and Family, and our neighborhood organizations to make sure our families are supported!
