Come celebrate the Portola Library’s 6th anniversary!

Book Mo Block Party
Heck, the Planet was quietly ticking away on the internet, just waiting for some summer fun to kick in. Now we’ve an event overload going down! Next up, the Portola public library is celebrating it’s 6th anniversary. There will be a block party this Saturday at 1-4pm at the Portola library, corner of Bacon and Goettingen St.

Joining the celebration is going to be the creation of a new art movement called Moving Art House, featuring artists of Southeast San Francisco.

Celebrate the Portola Branch Library’s 6th anniversary with BookMo and the Moving Art House. After 80 years located in rented storefronts, the Portola Branch Library found a home with plenty of space for patrons, a community room, and a garden tended by students from nearby schools.

Moving Art House is a mobile cultural space created by Kate Connell and Oscar Melara (Book and Wheel Works) in collaboration with Richard Talavera and The Mexican Bus. The Mexican Bus is a vibrantly painted popular culture icon, filled with small sculpture, decals, Mexican movie posters of the 40s and 50s. The Moving Art House series includes three events and a culminating exhibition at the Portola Branch Library opening in December. Moving Art House is Book and Wheel Works’ third public art project in the Portola District.

This party will be followed by two more events,

  • The Nite Life. Friday, August 21st between 6:00-10:00 pm at the El Toro Nightclub
  • The 5.5 Mile Road House, Handmade games and prizes! Saturday, September 19. Location and time to be announced
