I believe that education is a library card. I don't consider myself a full-time resident until I get one. The librarians are immensely sweet and helpful. Plenty of computers to freely access the internet. There is a large space dedicated to ADA resources. The main floor has many rows of DVDs and videos to browse for family entertainment. No where is safer and more enlightening than the San Francisco Main Public Library.

The facility and staff are nice but I feel danger everywhere even if there are guards!! Watchout for the mens bathroom, people bringing dogs, potentially dangerous people who will stickup their middle finger for sitting in front of them. Oh and the study room is not under controle for quietness.

I love, LOVE this Main Library! The staff on the 5th floor were really helpful when you need them, and I've never had a problem with asking for help, only when I need it of course. Anyways, about the 6th floor. I really wish they can open the doors to the outside sitting area. Too bad nowadays, they keep it shut preventing everybody from going in it. Sad. Also, I didn't like that stalking lady. You know the employee with the short brown hair Caucasian lady that keeps coming out of her office. I'm like what is the deal? Then as I was getting up to leave, I caught her looking at me when I am standing up getting ready to walk out and she walked the other way. I was like - ok. Is that why nobody wanted to go to the 6th floor to sit on the long tables near the water fountains today? This happened today... 09/14/16 3:21pm ***UPDATE*** OKAY, I asked one of the assistants at the desk near the 5th floor printers and she just got me to re-enter my user & password after 6 times, just to make 2 copies but the printers I was using kept saying "FAILED TO AUTHENTICATE." I really don't know what that means. She just didn't do a good job at telling me what I should do to print my papers but instead told me to go use one of the computers.

great building and library staff but security is stupid, lazy and racist against whites. The homeless are allowed to do whatever they want and security will do nothing about it. I was threatened with a knife by a crazy homeless man and they asked me to leave so as not to escalate the situation?? I said no he is going to leave not me, so the black lady security called more of her people and then threatened to call the police on me !!! I got a hold of the librarian in charge and he had the security finally do there job. To many homeless sleeping, changing and smelling up the place and their homeless dogs. In New York this would never be tolerarated

The best library I've been to. I just moved into town and got a card that day and was checking out books. Im a computer science major and they had most of the coding/programming books I needed. 6 floors or more of every book you could need for school or just to read. They have tons of Open spaces and desks with computers to use and search the library easy and go online and also to work on projects and they have outlets to charge everything!!!

Anyways, the Main Library has a Peet's Coffee in the ground level and I prefer Starbucks better. Not the one across the street but this Peet's Coffee certainly has nice people working there.

Beyond books, cd's, newspapers, & magazines, there are many great workshops, everything from cooking to coding. Free films & documentaries. I found my apartment here through a hosted non-profit, The San Francisco Community Land Trust. Free databases on eLearning, & more. There are events daily. Subscribe to the newsletter. All for free with just a library card.
