As part of the bond measure overwhelmingly passed by the voters in November 2000, the San Francisco Public Library is replacing the Visitacion Valley Branch Library.

Highlights Include

  • Corner entrance with prominent design to give a civic presence to the building

  • Service desk with sight lines to all areas of the library

  • Separate children, teens, and adult spaces

  • New program room accessible after hours for community use

  • Different roof heights with acoustical treatments to create quiet spaces

  • Study room to allow space for quiet independent study

  • Windows to provide lighting and natural ventilation to all areas of library

  • Space for more books, computers and other materials

  • Green Building features (LEED Gold equivalent)

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.
