Open Hours Assessment Community Hearings

District 1
Event detail
Add to my calendar

The Library is undergoing an assessment of our current open hours. This assessment is required every five years per the Library Preservation Fund ordinance and was last conducted in 2012 with implementation of new hours in 2013. Eleven library locations—each representing a San Francisco supervisorial district—will host Open Hours Community Hearings in late October and early November.

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
