In compliance with San Francisco City/County requirements, the Mechanics’ Institute building is closed until further notice. Thank you for your support and patience as we continue to evaluate and adjust our services due to COVID-19. While our building is closed, you have access to thousands of library ebooks, eaudiobooks, and emagazines as well as virtual events, and chess.
During this closure, no library materials can be returned. All library materials will be due after we reopen; there will be no fines for items due during the period we are closed.
If you have a research question or other library related question, please call 415-393-0102 or email [email protected]. If you have membership questions, please email [email protected]. If you have questions about our chess club or would like to join an online tournament, please email [email protected]
Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Mechanics’ Institute.
