This library is one of the largest libraries in the bay area. If you ever need a book, movie or any type of reference that you cannot find, this is the place for you.

It seems like this library has about 100 floors. I enjoy the computer area the best because you can do all kinds of research: both library based and google based. There is always someone around to help you.

It is very safe in this library. Even though its located in the busy downtown area and open to the public, there are many security guards around to help you feel safe.

I suggest taking public transportation if you plan on visiting the main library. There are metered parking spaces available, if you want to pay twenty five cents every 15 minutes.

No surprise that the Main Branch Library would be the largest branch and with the largest selection of books within San Francisco's public library. With multiple floors and nooks, I found it very easy to find a place to bury myself in my studies.

However, with such a large facility, it can be imposing and intimidating. Also, finding an area to converse with group members can be hard - since talking is frowned upon. I definitely suggest looking for one of the few corner areas with only 1-2 tables.

Or, head to the children's floor. Even though kids are running around and the tables are extremely low, sitting at the tables near the door and help desk allows for general peace to converse with group mates.

PROS: Lots of books
CONS:
