How SFPL To Go Works—3 easy steps

Step one

PLACE A HOLD

Request a book, DVD, audiobook, LP or any circulating item located at participating SFPL To Go libraries using any of these three methods:

  • Go to sfpl.org and place a hold through your library account;
  • Email info@sfpl.org; or
  • Call 415-557-4400 and speak to library staff.
Step 2

WAIT TO HEAR FROM US

Check your inbox, mailbox or phone for a notification letting you know your items are ready for you to come get them at an SFPL To Go location.

Step 3

PICK UP YOUR ITEMS

Please arrive with your face covering on and stand six feet apart in the line while you wait to be helped. When you approach the service table, you will be asked for your name and last four digits of your library card. You will wait a few minutes while staff locates your items. You are welcome to collect your materials with your reusable bag, but per health guidelines, you may not be able to place your bag on the table. If you do not have a bag, staff will provide one. For safety reasons, staff will not be able to answer general reference or other library questions at the door. If you need to speak to someone, please see contact information above.
