Council of Neighborhood Libraries

Mission Statement

In order to create a public library system that best meets the needs of San Franciscans, the CNL promotes dialogue among and between Branch Libraries, San Francisco neighborhoods, and library and city decision-makers by:

  • Promoting public awareness about the library system and its services
  • Identifying and championing branch needs and working to resolve issues
  • Acting as a conduit for neighborhood input
