As part of the bond measure overwhelmingly passed by the voters in November 2000, the San Francisco Public Library is renovating the Parkside Branch Library. We plan to make it seismically safe, fully accessible and technologically updated, while enhancing its unique character.

Renovation highlights include a small addition, new accessible restrooms, improved public and staff spaces, a designated Teen Area near the courtyard, more computers, better lighting, and new & refinished furniture, shelving, and materials displays.

The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library are raising funds from private donations to pay for new furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the branch libraries.
