Design Process

The design process for The Mix at SFPL was funded through an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-MacArthur Foundation grant.  The process included working with partners (KQED, California Academy of Sciences, and the Bay Area Video Coalition), The Mix staff and the Board of Advising Youth to create a program and conceptual design. Additional financial support for the capital improvement project was provided by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
