MORE SUMMER FUN:
The Warriors storytime is part of Summer Stride 2019, the Library’s award-winning summer learning program, with more than 1,000 fun, informative and timely programs supporting science, technology, education, math and reading for all ages at every branch, every week of the summer June 1 – August 18.
Tracking summer reading is encouraged, with finishers earning a coveted prize designed by award-winning children’s book illustrator Zachariah OHora. The art for this year’s program was inspired by Chronicle Books’s Bikes for Sale, written by Carter Higgins. The bold and bright campaign artwork reflects libraries as an essential resource and gathering space for children, teens and adults to share and learn. All are welcome at the San Francisco Public Library.
The Library also offers summer weekly raffles. Prizes include free passes to local museums, concert tickets, local restaurant gift certificates and more. Patrons can enter the weekly raffles at any branch library.
