The San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and the SF Unified School District are redeveloping our book site location as teacher housing. Project developer MidPen Housing submitted their plans to the San Francisco Planning Department in March 2019, with environmental review of the proposal to follow. Planning approvals take about 18 months, and in that time MidPen will continue to work on the plans and keep the community informed at their Project Updates page.

We’re thrilled for our teachers who will get a chance to live affordably in the city, but now we need to find a new home after June 2020. If you know of any available, affordable office space in San Francisco—even shared space—please contact the Children’s Book Project’s Managing Director Emily Maksymiuk with ideas or leads. We’re looking for:

  • 3,000–6,000 square feet;
  • ground floor entry (or elevator access);
  • nearby parking;
  • location in San Francisco, ideally in the Bayview, Dogpatch, Western Addition, or Outer Mission.
