Can't find an available copy?
If the CCSF Libraries do not have an item you need, you may be able to find it elsewhere.
- Try searching the San Francisco Public Library catalog.
- If neither the CCSF or public libraries have your title, then try searching Link+.
(Link+ is a cooperating libraries program that the San Francisco Public Library participates in. If your book is available at a participating library, it can be sent to the San Francisco public library you choose for pickup. This usually takes 3-4 days. You must have a public library card to use this service.)
- If you cannot find your book using Link+, please ask a reference librarian for help.
