The San Francisco Public Library’s Shades of San Francisco Project approached SoMa Pilipinas

for the joint venture. The Project’s mission is to copy photographs from family albums, private

collections, and computers of current and former San Francisco residents to highlight the rich


diversity of the city. The copied photos will be added to the San Francisco History Center’s

photo archives and digital library in order to create a permanent record of the daily lives of

Filipino San Franciscans.

On Saturday, May 13 Photo Day, the San Francisco Public Library with their staff and volunteers

will copy photos and have the contributors to meet and socialize with the SoMa Pilipinas


Photo albums, loose photographs and digital photos are welcome.  To make an appointment, c
