The NPS is marking its 100th birthday in 2016 and one of the primary partners for the Centennial year at GGNRA is the San Francisco Library System.

In celebration of the wonders of the national parks, the SF Public Library is positioning its annual summer reading program, Summer Stride: Read, Create, Explore to ensure that youth and families spend time reading and learning as well as exploring national parks.

As part of this partnership, rangers from the GGNRA will be leading ranger talks at all 28 San Francisco Public Libraries this summer. In addition, patrons can join a park ranger on a free shuttle from nine neighborhood branch libraries to local national parks.

Summer Stride kicked off May 7 at the Junior Ranger Jamboree at Crissy Field and will continue until Aug. 13.
