Wish List

Wish List

The San Francisco Center for the Book moved to a new home on January 15, 2013. With more space, we can teach more classes, mount additional exhibitions and offer additional public programming. We have a "Wish List" of items for our new home – everything from track lighting for the gallery, a steam cleaner for our floors, a table for students to eat lunch outdoors, stools for the print studio and bindery, Mac Mini computers for use by staff and volunteers, recording equipment for video and sound to capture our lectures and artist interviews, banner stands for our off-site demonstations and books for the library. If you'd like to contribute to our mission of promoting the books arts by donating items from our "Amazon Wish List" please browse the list below. If you have any of these items and would like to make an in-kind donation, contact Jeff Thomas | jeff@sfcb.org
