2 - 3 pm in the Glen Park Branch Program room

Help us celebrate the paperback release of Naked on the Page : The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife with a reading by local author Jane Ganahl.

Beginning with the launch of her wildly successful San Francisco Chronicle column “Single Minded” and ending with her 50th birthday, Jane's memoir (recently optioned for a TV series by TBS) follows one frenetic year in a smart, social, middle-aged woman’s life.

Jane Ganahl has been a journalist, editor, author, consultant and community organizer in San Francisco for 25 years. She co-directs Litquake : San Francisco's Literary Festival.

Book signing follows event.

A History of Library Services in Glen Park

The Glen Library has been located in various neighborhood locations for the past 81 years. Here is a time line of all of our site:
  • 1927. The first location opened at 700 Bosworth

  • 1964. The library moved to 2909 Diamond Street when Bosworth was widened. The library stood where BART's Diamond Street steps are now located

  • 1969. The library then moved to 2842 Diamond, the current home of Gialina Pizzeria

    1969 Location -click photo for more info

  • 1978. The library then moved to 653 Chenery Street. This was a very beloved location. The connection to the Tiez family and the coziness of the branch have made it had a special place in the hearts of many Glen Park residents. It is now the current home of Bird & Beckett Books

  • 2007. Our first non-rented location at 2825 Diamond opened on October 13, 2007. Big, brighter and with a view.

I think I can safely say that the current location will probably be the last location for many, many years.
