If you like reading, you want to check out the book collection available at SFPL. If you live in SF and have proof of address, you can get the membership and can reserve/look for books online. There are a ton of other resources available online and if you are a student, SFPL membership can come in really handy. There are a ton of books available in all subjects and lots of guides, magazines, newspaper options, ebooks, CD's etc so you can never run out of options. You might find homeless people occasionally in SFPL but hopefully overtime that issue gets resolved.

It's a big building full of free things - like books, a video store not too far off from a blockbuster, internet cafe, study room, and educational center to name a few. It's a GREAT place to learn. There are drawbacks, though. The homeless congregate here due to the access to the bathroom - which has become a shower for them via the 'birdbath' (don't ask). You might have to wait a bit to use the internet. But, all in all, this is a great place for learning and a landmark building in San Francisco.

For starters, the guard was very friendly! I went up and in to one of the study rooms and the wall design is magnificent! They were small rectangular papers with handwriting of different people at different times. Mostly, words of wisdom and inspirational quotes. It was awesome. I got an idea for my future room.

This review covers the Koret Auditorium in the main library. I've been to the movies several times in this lower level 'sunken treasure', mainly documentaries and have not had a bad experience once. This 235 seat Koret Auditorium is easily confused with its 269 seat namesake inside the de Young Museum, so make certain you are heading for the right movie in the right location. If you have time, the exhibition on the same level usually has something interesting, mainly photography. Word of warning: the bike racks outside are not 100% secure.

I love this Library! It's beautiful and lots of natural light shines inside. Easy to find the new released books on the first floor. Easy to drop off books and self check out is the best! The other great asset at this Main Library are the events, free classes and the Jewett Gallery.

Love how many little nooks there are here for settling in with a book. Plenty of sunlight from the atrium and from the many windows. And while there is always a significant homeless population, I'm not really going to ding the library for making itself available to people who are in there to get on the Internet or to borrow some books. Conveniently by Little Saigon, so snag some food before or after bookworming.
