Genealogists will be thankful for this news from the California State Library:
The Sutro Library is re-opening at its new location August 1, 2012. Since its establishment in 1913, the Sutro branch of the California State Library has never had a permanent home. Now it does--on the fifth and sixth floors of the newly renovated J. Paul Leonard and Sutro Library building on the campus of San Francisco State University. The fifth floor reading room is bright and spacious, with brand new furniture, computers, and scanners for both print and microform.
The Sutro Library is, once again, providing no-fee interlibrary loan service; and, starting August 1, 2012, will be open to the public from 10 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.
Our new address is:
1630 Holloway Drive
San Francisco CA 94132
Please note that the Sutro telephone number has also changed. Our main number is now 415-469-6100.
Our e-mail address remains the same: firstname.lastname@example.org
