The San Francisco Public Library and SF Unified School District are partnering up on a new weekly pop-up pickup service announced Tuesday.

The service, called SFPL To Go-Go, uses the library’s fleet of bookmobiles to allow residents to pick up and drop off items at Jose Ortega Elementary, Willie Brown Jr. Middle School and John O’Connell High School between 2 and 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as at Treasure Island on Wednesdays.

While patrons will need to reserve their materials ahead of time, staff members will be on site with free materials to hand out to community members to help encourage reading.

For more information, visit the SF Public Library’s To Go page and look for the bookmobile site locations.
