Long Description:
"Golden Gate has approximately 35,000 books, compact discs, videos, DVDs, audio cassettes, and magazines and newspapers for all ages. Circulating materials are largely of popular interest with a strong emphasis on fiction and jazz music ( Golden Gate is well known for its GG Friends' sponsored Summer Jazz on Sunday series). The African American collection is one of the largest branch collections in the system. Special-interest collections include the East Indian Collection, a small Performing Art Collection (including Storytelling, Reader's Theatre, Puppetry, and Drama), and a collection of Chess "how-to"; books for all ages. Golden Gate also offers a very impressive Children's room filled with popular titles and an inviting teen section with a growing print and non-print collection." (visit link)
