Enjoyed an exhibit on 56 ethnic minority groups of China during my wanderings through the Main @sfpubliclibrary today. Reminded me of my best friend @psophephe and all the beautiful marketing campaigns she's worked hard on over the past few years. #sfplmainlibrary #Manchuhat #Hezhenhat #Mulamhat #Manchushoes #Manchurobe

Surprise, I'm in Special Collections at the San Francisco Public Library, trying not to drool on a pile of type specimens and printing industry books. Can I place an order please? #typespecimen #letterpress #printinghistory #sfplmainlibrary #pagewoodtype #coltsarmorypress

I'm in love with this display of art by incarcerated youth at @sfpubliclibrary -- "If superpowers could save my community". Creative solutions to community problems, powerful themes, and gorgeous artwork. Love love love it. #blackcomixartfestival #comicbookart #sfplmainlibrary #sanfranciscoyouth #makearteveryday #inspiredart #proudtostudyarttherapy

The toddlers went on a field trip to the Library. They were greeted with a wide-array of childrenโ€™s books in the childrenโ€™s section, but their favorite is the Holiday Train display! Go check it out at the SF Main Library ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿš‚โ„๏ธ๐ŸŒฒ

Library picks for rest of the month. ๐Ÿ“šA special thank you to @sfpubliclibrary for fueling my curiosity, letting me fly high with imagination and filled with friendly & awesome staff. It is always in a matter of minutes I can pick a book on any subject or genre, since past 2 years!!. Today it was all about art and doodling. ๐Ÿ˜#librarybooks #sfplmainlibrary #artbook

When we say the library is a place of learning we really mean it! On a walk around the Main Library for #libraryshelfieday images, we passed through the doors of the Children's Center and spotted this wonderful display encouraging early readers to learn how to bring unity, kindness, and peace to their communities. We love our children's librarians!
Thank you to our friends @nyplpicturecollection and @billyparrott @msh!

You are here! Just in case you get turned around somewhere deep in the recesses of the Main Library, a stenciled GPS system for staff. New library workers have been found bewildered and muttering to themselves as they wander the labyrinthine hallways. And so this helpful guide.

A view of the Main Library from the Civic Center: in preparation for the San Francisco LGBTQ Pride Celebration and Festival, Saturday, June 25; Parade on Sunday, June 26. Please note: the Main Library will be closed on Sunday, while all branches will be open. The Main will reopen on Monday. Have fun and be safe!

Color explosion! The pop-up section from The Gospel of Mary, printed by the venerable Janus Press (2006). See our previous post for more information on the making of the book. ๐Ÿ’ฅ
This is precisely what's needed for this rain-soaked city. Oh, wait, the sun is out and the sky is blue...maybe for the next 15 minutes!

#Biblioweatherreport! We just looked outside our window and there are umbrellas galore on the street. A rainy day in San Francisco, with more expected tonight. ๐ŸŒ‚
Meanwhile, we reached into the collection for this delightful little book: Umbrellas and Their History by William Sangster (1855), proprietor of the London umbrella makers W. and J. Sangster. Illustrations by Charles Henry Bennett, better known for his illustrations of Fables of Aesop and Others (1857), of which we are sad to report that we only have a 1978 reproduction.

Just hangin' in the stacks with Monsieur Diderot on #LibraryShelfie day. We took our cue from @silibraries's fabulous post of the great Diderot encyclopedia. This is the first Paris edition: Encyclopรฉdie, ou, Dictionaire Raisonnรฉ des Sciences des Arts et Metiers par une Societรฉ de Gens de Lettres (Paris: Briasson, 1751-1772). What a brilliant lot of Enlightenment scholars!
