Step through the doors of our cozy library cottage and discover the magical world of books.
Students use this inviting space to explore the shelves, read, and do homework. There are more than 5,000 volumes for all grades, from picture books to young nonfiction to middle-grade readers. There are also vast multicultural offerings, including African-American, Native American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian literature. Parents are welcome to borrow parenting resources and books about the Waldorf curriculum.
The librarian is a supportive resource for students, parents, and teachers. Summer Reading Lists are put together by the librarian in consultation with each Class Teacher to review the previous year's Main Lessons, encourage reading for pleasure, and support parents in their efforts to find age-appropriate material.
San Francisco Public Library has an excellent online catalog. Sign in with your library card, and request delivery of books to your local branch.
These stores have our electronic reading lists: Books Inc. (Chestnut Street, Opera Plaza, Laurel Village), The Booksmith (The Haight), Book Passage (The Ferry Building, Corte Madera), and Mrs. Dalloway's (Berkeley).
Summer Reading: 2017
These lists are created each year with specific groups of children and their Class Teacher's plans in mind. SFWS is happy to share the reading lists outside the school, but appreciates SFWS and the grade school library being acknowledged when they are shared.
