SF Main Library

When I was a kid, the main library was fascinating.  It was so huge, it was overwhelming.  I don’t remember much of it from way back then, but I remember endless card catalogs, and looking around and seeing books and books and books.

They remodeled it, and there were years that I didn’t go there.  I found out about programs that were hosted there, so I started going more frequently.  It’s very easy to get to on public transportation, and there’s always a free show by some local crazy person going on in the lobby and occasionally in the bathroom.

I do go there to read quite frequently, but I stay away from the fourth floor where the foreign language books are kept.  People listen to and repeat the language they are trying to learn.  I read on the 5th floor, and there’s usually an interesting display on the 6th floor.  I find enough to keep me busy there for hours.
