11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

San Francisco Main Public Library
100 Larkin Street
San Francisco, 94102

For members only!

Join Past-president Jane Lindsey for an encore tour of the areas of genealogical interest at the San Francisco Main Public Library. Attendees will gather at 11:00 a.m. outside The San Francisco History Center on the sixth floor and split into two groups for a tour led by San Francisco City Archivist Susan Goldstein and library staff.

BART will be the transportation of choice. Travel to the Civic Center Station and walk towards the large blue medallion painted on the wall, then up the stairs or escalator. The library is across the street.

After the tour, members will gather to learn about the online catalog and the many San Francisco records the library has recently digitized through and and how to access them.

I have visited there before bus tours from los angeles. This library has a wide collection of books about history, art, geography and a lot more. This is what a library should be. Be aware that there are lots of vagrant types who hang around inside the library and use the computers, which is good as (hopefully) they are looking for opportunities, but also a drag if you are trying to look up where a book is.
