Judged by San Francisco's former Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman, Poets 11 is a platform for both new and established poets. More than 200 people submitted their work to this city-wide poetry contest and reading series, which collects poetry from each of San Francisco’s 11 districts. Please join us as in the upcoming months as selected poets read their work in their district branch library!

Friends of the SF Public Library has many volunteer opportunities, including assistance with the Library Steps Book Sales, working at our Donation Center, helping at our main office, joining the Spring Book Sale and Big Book Sale teams, and much more!
