Well, the Richmond Branch of the San Francisco Public Library will once again be open to the public starting tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 PM. Check it:
“Mark your calendars now! The Richmond / Senator Milton Marks Branch will re-open Saturday, May 16, with a spectacular opening party featuring music, entertainment, refreshments and lion dancers. Located at 351 Ninth Ave., the branch has been closed for a renovation that adds 4,000 square feet to the building and includes seismic strengthening, accessibility improvements, and energy-efficiency and technology upgrades.”
We’ve got your grandeur right here in spades:
Kicking it old-school, baby:
Now about controversial writer Ann Coulter. Can you see her book Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America prominently displayed? It jumps right out at you as you walk in. This might be the entire collection of Coulterana in the whole county.
The branch’s expansion will allow for enhanced services, including an increase in the collection size with more teen, audiovisual and Chinese and Russian materials.
The branch will now have two new study rooms; a spacious new lobby at the 10th Avenue entrance; additional public restrooms; and a designated teen room. A large program room is included, creating a new neighborhood venue for events. The historic integrity of this 1914 Carnegie landmark has been maintained and the building restored to its original grandeur.
See you there!
