Children's Story Time, 2015
Today, the children’s collection houses over 2,000 books related to the natural world including botany, natural history, zoology, agriculture, physical science, and myths and stories. Library children’s programs include bimonthly story time, a summer reading club, and special events for children and families.
Circulation of books from the Children’s Collection began in 2012, with borrowing privileges extended to San Francisco Botanical Garden Society members and San Francisco teachers. Circulation of children's books was made possible by grant funding from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
