Saturday: Community Meeting to Discuss Future of SF Public Library


The SF Public Library is holding a series of “community conversations” around town to discuss the future of the City’s library system. The next sessions happens on Saturday, morning, June 25 at 9:30 am at the Bernal Library, and you’re invited:

This summer the San Francisco Public Library is embarking on a community engagement initiative throughout the city to ask residents for their views about the public library, its many services and its future.

Through a series of focus groups in each Supervisory District, the Library hopes to gain a greater understanding of different neighborhoods’ challenges and aspirations, and strengthen connections with community residents. We want to find new ways the Library can be of service, and improve our communication to the community about the hundreds of exciting programs the library already offers.

Each focus group will host a targeted audience of residents specially invited to participate as a representative member of the community. You have been referred to the Library as an individual who is active in your local community and as someone who cares deeply about the quality of life for San Franciscans.

We value your time and your opinions and hope you can join us for the Listening Tour event planned for

Saturday, June 25, 2016, 9:30 a.m.

  1. Is this actually open to the public? It sounds like the invitation was intended for specific individuals.

  2. I haven’t been to the Bernal Heights library in decades: I’m a retired high school English teacher/counselor living here in Sacramento. And from what I see in Sacramento’s libraries, I am impressed. Not sure if the BH library has computers to use, a kids area and separate one for the youngest kids,, reading area with magazines and newspapers which many older persons use, plus lots of books, cd’s, books-on-tape. There is a service to obtain books from other libraries. Librarians are very helpful.
    My suggestion is to contact some retired librarians or colleges that offer a Masters in Library Science (like USC) and get their input. They would have the latest info plus know how the future of libraries is tending.
