On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-6 p.m., the Library’s fleet of bookmobiles ("To Go-Go" Sites) will park at Jose Ortega Elementary School, Willie Brown Jr. Middle School and John O’Connell High School and at Treasure Island on Wednesdays from 2-6 p.m.
The San Francisco Public Library "To Go" Services
SFPL To Go is a service that safely delivers requested library materials at select Library locations to patrons.
The San Francisco Public Library’s version of “curbside pickup” is providing a contact-free front door type service where patrons can queue up outside our buildings to pick up their requested books at the library entrance.
SFPL "Scholar Card"
Every SFUSD student has been issued a public library card (called a "Scholar Card"), as well as a 4-digit password or PIN (personal identification number).
Check your school account for an email sent September 1 from the SFPL with the subject: "Back to School With the San Francisco Public Library."
The email will contain your Scholar Card/Library Card account number. It will not contain your PIN. Click on the arrow to the right if you still don't know your card number and/or PIN/Password.
HINT, HINT, HINT
If you have your card number but can't remember your 4-digit PIN, try using your birth year (Example: 2008), or your birth date (example: May 21 would be 0521).
Still need your card number or PIN? Click on the arrow to the right for instructions on how to obtain your student "Scholar Card."
