We are excited about Summer Reading!

Join us and your fellow readers for our Summer Read SF 2012 from June 1 to August 4! All ages can participate, read, win prizes and enjoy special summer reading programs at the library.

You can sign up online from any computer with an internet connection by going to http://sfpl.org/summerreading or you can come to the library and have a librarian or volunteer help you sign up.

The theme this year is San Francisco but you can read any book or listen to audiobooks. If you don't know where to start or are looking for a good book to read, check out the reading lists compiled by our librarians for all ages and in several different languages. Also check out the book displays put together by our staff. If you have a book you like and would like to recommend it, write us a short book review either on the Summer Reading website or turn it in on paper at the library.
