Local library back in business

Its remodeling completed on time and within budget, the historic home of the Presidio Branch library at 3150 Sacramento Street reopened on March 26. The renovation included restoration of the exterior and interior and refurbishing of the original wood shelving. An interactive learning area for children and a teen area were added, along with 16 public computers and WiFi access.

The library has been serving the neighborhood since 1898. Its landmark home, completed in 1921, was funded by Andrew Carnegie.
