” People can check out a lot more than books at the San Francisco Public Library — they can find housing and mental health care, too. The California library became the first in the U.S. to hire a social worker with a mental health care background–and since 2009 she’s provided services for 800 homeless patrons. Best of all, social worker Leah Esguerra has found permanent housing for more than 150.”
