Refer Friends and Extend Your Membership

While many are sheltering in place and many Mechanics’ Institute virtual events are free to all during this time, a significant number of members have opted to delay renewing. We miss you!


We love to delight members with our much-utilized library "To-Go" service, virtual classes and author events, chess tournaments, an expanded repertoire of online chess classes, and 24/7 access to databases and electronic materials -- including books, magazines, and movie streaming.


Now you can support Mechanics’ Institute by referring friends and family to join. If someone joins MI as a new member and names you as their referral source on the application, you will receive an additional three months of membership, and can earn up to six months of membership at no cost to you. More reason to tell your family, friends, and acquaintances about the perks of Mechanics' Institute membership!


In the new year, membership staff will send reminders to those who have allowed their memberships to lapse, just in case they missed their renewal notice in 2020. Be on the lookout for more info in your inbox and your mail box!


If you have questions about your membership, please contact us at [email protected] or call 415-393-0105 and we will return your call as soon as we’re able to.


To our members and supporters, thank you!
