The thoughtful renovation of the beautiful, midcentury modern branch included a small addition, new accessible restrooms, seismic upgrading, technological updating and new furnishings. The light-filled Library includes a reading lounge area with a refurbished gas fireplace as well as a pleasant outdoor courtyard surrounded by flowers and plants. Originally built in 1961, the branch library now offers more designated space for teens and children as well as accommodating a new staff work area. A more flexible layout can support a variety of library programs and events. The branch alsohas new furniture, shelving and flooring, a comfortable newspaper and magazine area, additional public computers and Wi-Fi access to the Internet. In 2000, San Francsisco voters passed Proposition A, the San Francisco Public Library Bond Program; allowing the City to finance, refurbish and seismically upgrade the city’s branch libraries.
