Afterwards, we'll go downstairs for a fun classroom presentation to learn about the online catalog and the many San Francisco records the library has recently digitized through Archive.org and FamilySearch.org along with how to access them.
If you don't already have a San Francisco library card, then this will be a great opportunity to get one. Residents of California with identification may obtain one for free.  Interested? Detailed information is available at the library website.

After all that walking and listening, you might be ready for a bite to eat.  Grab someone from the tour and check out Café Asia at the Asian Art Museum.

Getting there
Remember to take BART (it's Super Bowl weekend).  Come to the Civic Center Station, then exit and walk towards the large blue medallion painted on the wall.  Next, go up the stairs or escalator. The library is across the street.
