About the Mechanics’ Institute

The Mechanics’ Institute is a general interest independent library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco. Founded in 1854 to serve the educational and social needs of mechanics—artisans, craftsmen, and inventors—and their families, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker in search of a place for literary pursuits, thinking, research, and study.

Consider becoming a member. Membership provides access to our library, chess activities, free admission to most of our events, and discounted rates for our writing classes! Membership is open to the public and starts at $120 a year. Please see milibrary.org/join for further details and benefits.

Take a tour! The institute has a long history and many exciting services. Tours take place every Wednesday at noon or by appointment.
