Boy, that’s going to be a hot L.Z. when Temporary Interim Caretaker Mayor Ed Lee alights on Lower Third to attend the groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the new Bayview Branch Library at Revere Street.
Currently, he’s skedded to be on hand tomorrow morning, along with Senator Mark Leno.

“The construction of the Bayview Branch Library is part of the Branch Library Improvement Program (BLIP), which is funded by a $106 million bond measure to upgrade or replace the city’s branch libraries. A separate fundraising campaign by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library will provide new furniture and equipment for the new library. The new Bayview library is being rebuilt as a world-class library with separate children, adult, & teen areas; a large program room; an interior courtyard; public art; study rooms and space to provide expanded library services to the community. Designed by THA Architecture and constructed by KCK Builders, this 9,000-square-foot building will provide a seismically safe, universally accessible and environmentally sustainable library facility.”
