CalMod: Caltrain Electrification Project Overview
Electrification is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization (CalMod) Program and will electrify the corridor from San Francisco’s 4th and King Caltrain Station to the Tamien Caltrain Station. Electrification improvements include converting diesel-hauled trains to Electric Multiple Unit (EMU), increase service to six trains per peak hour per direction, and maintain operating speed up to 79 mph.
The purposes of CalMod is to improve system performance and curtail long-term environmental impacts by reducing noise, improving regional air quality, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Electrification improvements will better address commuters’ vision of increased service and improved travel times in an environmentally friendly and reliable way. These service improvements are also expected to help accommodate increased system ridership through improved system operations.
Caltrain Electrification construction activities are underway! Read the latest updates at calmod.org.

One City One Book: The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui
San Francisco Public Library is excited to announce that the 14th Annual One City One Book selection is The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui.
In what Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” The Best We Could Do explores the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child. Thi Bui documents her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves in America. The Best We Could Do is a haunting memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for a simpler past. As the child of a country and a war she can’t remember, Bui’s dreamlike artwork brings to life her journey to understanding her own identity in a way that only comics can.
Since the publication of the hardcover in March 2017, The Best We Could Do has made a place for itself in the graphic novel canon and has received 5 starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Library Journal, School Library Journal, and Shelf Awareness. It was also nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award in the autobiography category and made it onto over thirty “Best of 2017” lists everywhere from the Washington Post to Entertainment Weekly. Thi Bui is a rising star in the comics and literary world, and her debut work is not to be missed.
Copies of The Best We Could Do are featured in all San Francisco libraries and at bookstores around the city.
Beginning October 2018, join book discussions, view themed exhibits, attend author talks and participate in many other One City One Book events. Check out the One City One Book website at sfpl.org.
September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month
This September, the library is encouraging everyone to check out your neighborhood branch and see what you’ve been missing. Sign-up for a new library card or renew your existing card for a chance to win a pair of JetBlue tickets. More details at www.sfpl.org/library-card-sign-up.
With a free library card, you can download books and magazines; stream music and movies; borrow new vinyl records, best sellers, portable internet devices (MiFi), DVDs; attend free computer classes, sign up for a online high school diploma program, immigration legal aide, and much more. The sky’s the limit with a San Francisco library card!
National Library Card Sign-Up Month is sponsored by the American Library Association. The campaign started in 1987 as a response to then Secretary of Education William Bennett, who stated, “Let’s have a campaign … Every child should obtain a library card and use it.” ALA’s theme this year is “The Incredibles” and we think the San Francisco Public Library is pretty incredible as the winner of the 2018 Library of the Year award.
There are ten San Francisco library card designs to choose from including Warriors’ cards! Anyone who lives in California and presents a valid photo ID at any of our 27 library locations or at our four bookmobiles is eligible for a new library card.
