This exhibit tells the story of San Francisco’s Portola District in a collection of handmade interactive books displayed on custom bookstands throughout the Portola Branch Library created by Portola neighborhood artists Kate Connell and Oscar Melara.

The artists explore the layers of history in seven interactive book installations using formats that include a giant book with give-away pages, graphic novels, an atlas, tunnel books and more. The book installations "map" the natural, social, cultural, and labor histories of this little-celebrated corner of San Francisco.
