Prelinger Library


"Serendipity"

The Prelinger Library is husband and wife duo Rick Prelinger and Megan Shaw Prelinger's labor of love. This independent research public library located in the neighborhood of SOMA has a collection of over 50,000 books, periodicals, government documents, zines and maps that date back to the 19th and 20th Century. These image rich materials are rarely found in public libraries and are accessible to the public once a week. Allocated into three sections, the library does not follow the traditional Dewey Decimal system as it wants its users to browse through and discover something new altogether that will draw their attention. The Prelinger looks like a book warehouse, but then its a place where you can read, research and get inspired.
