Imagine a place that welcomes and connects our community, that is a joy to work in and that celebrates knowledge and learning. Picture a branch library that respects its historic architecture yet incorporates the vibrancy and culture of the neighborhood.
In collaboration with the community and with architects from San Francisco Public Works, the Library aims to transform neighborhood libraries into an energy efficient, safe and resilient library while maintaining its inherent charm. We plan to incorporate 21st Century library practices, building systems and technology into these landmarked libraries.
These are lofty goals, but with the community’s participation and our team’s creativity, the Mission Branch will continue as a neighborhood treasure for many generations to come.
