Growing Green

About Green Stacks

A partnership of San Francisco Public Library, San Francisco Environment and Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, in conjunction with the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center. The Library strives to inspire and inform users about greener living, with enlightening public events, reading lists, sustainability resources, and real-world examples from our eco-friendly libraries.

We’re blossoming! Community gardens were planted and offer youth gardening workshops at two neighborhood branches. A seed lending library at Potrero Branch allows patrons to take home seeds to plant and return new seeds after harvesting. Living roof gardens at Ortega and Bayview branches serve as energy efficient cooling for the buildings.
