Supervisorial District 9
Event detail
Add to my calendar

The Library Preservation Fund, renewed by Proposition D in November 2007, requires that the Library Commission assess and modify as appropriate the hours of operation of the Main and branch libraries at least once every five years. As part of that process, San Francisco Public Library is conducting public hearings in each of the City’s 11 supervisorial district this September and October to obtain community input about library hours and services. These public hearings will also allow residents to give us their ideas about library services and priorities and allow the Library to present ideas about its future goals and initiatives.

The Library welcomes the public’s comments and suggestions about the current hours and hopes that many will participate in these Open Hours Assessment Community Hearings. Feedback will provide us with the information needed to update or maintain library hours that best serve the needs of San Francisco residents.

To ensure the participation of people with disabilities, sign language interpreter services and real-time captioning and large-print survey forms will be provided at all of the meetings. Requesting other accommodations at least 72 hours in advance will help to ensure availability. For inquiries or requests for accommodations, please call (415) 557-4557 or email
