More people sleeping at San Francisco Public Library
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- According to the San Francisco Examiner, the San Francisco's main public library saw a sharp uptick last year in the number of people caught sleeping there.
The library has long been a place where homeless people take shelter. It even has a social worker on duty to help them find services they might need, but a review of security reports shows more than an 80 percent increase in library sleeping cases.
The incidents nearly doubled to more than 1,000 compared to roughly 600 last year.
