Ebooks, Netflix, and Library Building Projects (Part 83, Bayview Branch Library, San Francisco)
Groundbreaking For New Bayview Library Celebrated. (SF Appeal, 7/23/2011)
Excerpt: San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will join city Librarian Luis Herrera this morning for the groundbreaking of a new branch library in the Bayview neighborhood.
The new Bayview Branch Library will include public art, an interior courtyard, study rooms, and separate areas for children, teens and adults, organizers said.
Construction of the new building is part of the Branch Library Improvement Program to upgrade or replace the city's branch libraries.
The program is funded by a $106 million bond measure and a separate fundraising campaign by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library will provide for new furniture and equipment, according to library officials.
