Authorities said the suspect, identified as Clifton Moore, allegedly struck another man over the head with a chair. He was quickly detained by security and then arrested.
Despite the unusual attack, officials maintained the library is still a safe place and that it attracts all kinds of people.
The main branch, located at 100 Larkin Street, is just across from Civic Center Plaza, City Hall and isnt too far from the Tenderloin District.
This is, you know, a very urban neighborhood, certainly. But the library is a very democratic institution, said library spokeswoman Michelle Jeffers.

All the more reason to get an e-reader and stay away.
“...attracts all kinds of people.” LMAO!
about 2% of which have an interest in books i’m guessing.
The rest- perverts, homeless, facebooking, video-gaming,
dvd renting, etc...
This is very good news. Gun control is working in San Francisco. It is pretty hard to either carry or conceal a chair though.
That's all kind of funny, right there. The library needs a new public affairs spokesperson.
Went into the LA main library not long ago and was shocked at the filth left on an open terminal. And I’m no prude.
The chair is a lovely tool, especially against knives.
I stopped going to libraries when the librarian organizations, the ACLU-er’s, and various libertarians were going around defending slobbering cretins who would walk into libraries and use the computers to surf for porn.
No way I’m going into a library, if they are to be such dens of scum. And it’s a shame, because I used to spend HOURS at libraries, sifting through the books. Used to be a passion of mine.
Poor man. Probably got insanely incensed upon reading ‘Dreams of My Father’.
Well just like there are calibers of guns there are different kinds of chairs. The sort of plain wooden type with a cushion seat, kinda heavy. That one is dangerous. And of course there’s the folding metal chair. This kind is quite possibly on par with a .357 or a .45. First of all it’s metal, you can use it as is or fold it and then you’ve got a really good weapon and swinging it side to side or in an arc and that suckers moves quick!
Can’t say for there, but, here in Savannah, it runs about 66% actually people working (papers, trying to get a job, homework, business,) about 33% facebook/games.
We don’t tolerate porn at all. That’s an auto ejection.
Right now, I have about 20 folks in, its 10/90 work to goofing off, but, it’s still early. When the shopping crowd hits to print coupons...well look out!
We still circulate a large number of books, but, A/V materials are certainly our top draw.
Go into a public library? In 2013? In Sab Fransicko??
Why not just find a nearby truck stop and wander into the woods out back?
This vicious, ongoing smear campaign by Right-wing extreemists against our Pres_ent must stop!
Well then, no harm, no foul.
(Actually, this is yet another object lesson in the meaning of 'the tragedy of the commons' that most left-leaning fools never quite understand.)
But she gets at least a few points for using the phrase 'very urban neighborhood' as a synonym for 'violent Obama voters that San Francisco welcomes with open arms'.
Same holds true in Virginia Beach. The main library is within staggering distance of the Social Services office. Not uncommon to see bums chilling out at the liberry. (sic)
Time to ban semi-automatic chairs. I blame La-Z-Boy.
They have to seat fewer than 15.
Worth a look if you haven't already seen it.
Btw, it's not your "average" fashion show.
That was probably as close as she dare come to admitting that the general public wants the libraries to keep the bums out.
