About this Event

The Mechanics' Institute of San Francisco was founded in 1854 with four books and a mission to start an organization to serve the vocational and social needs of the city’s mechanics, artisans, and industrialists. Within a few years the Institute was offering classes in mechanical drawing, industrial design, electrical science, and applied mathematics. They had started a chess club and had acquired a magnificent library that slaked San Francisco’s voracious appetite for technical and pleasurable reading material.

Today, Mechanics’ Institute continues as a historical landmark and membership organization boasting a fantastic general-interest library, an active cultural event calendar, and a world-renowned chess club. It is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and 21st-century individuals in search of a place for literary pursuits, thinking, research, and study.

If you are a new, long-time, or prospective member the tour of the Institute will orient you to our building, include an overview of our history and mission, and outline our current services and the benefits of membership.

Light refreshments will be available during the welcome reception and complimentary beverages will be shared.

Stay for CinemaLit at 6:00 pm where we'll be showing family-friendly Spellbound (2002).
