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!!!

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.

If the neighborhood wasn't as bad, this would be a great central library. But trying to read at a table with an unstable person trying to take a babywipe shower and intravenous drug use on the steps makes it inaccessible for people concerned about safety -- or the general welfare of our city overall.

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

While tech is on boom in SF, this library remains as the sole place for privileged to learn from the literature. Contains amazing collections, quick signup and returns. You can also find collections of old movies and audios in there. One of the best things, it contains a section of disabled people. You will find a lot of homeless people there, but anyone who is willing to learn and improve, even if homeless in physical state, is a much better person than the ones on street.

It has a vast collection of hard to get novels and encyclopedias from well over 50 years ago. As far as the homeless they have just as much right to be there if not more than any tax paying citizen.

Hub for the homeless, though there's a good security presence. Wonderful technology and collection of media.
