North Beach

North Beach Library

The North Beach Library is located at 2000 Mason St, San Francisco, C.A 94133. It is a good place to hold meetings, rent books, or hangout. It also has a lot of books to check out. The chairs aren't very comfortable and it's tough to get on a computer, but at least it's a nearby library for kids in the neighborhood.

The North Beach was founded in November of 2000 when the voters passed a bond measure for $106 million to upgrade San Francisco’s branch library system. The North Beach project budget was increased from $3.7 million to between $7.6 - $8.4 million and its scope went from a Renovation to a brand new building.

A Master Planning process for the park, in conjunction with the Recreation & Park Department, has begun. The goal of the Master Planning for the library is to decide where in the park the new larger library should be located within the Joe DiMaggio Playground area.

The firm of Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects has been hired to facilitate the Master Planning process and develop site alternatives and library conceptual designs.

The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library are raising funds from private donations for new furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the branch library. For information on the neighborhood capital campaign, call (415) 626-7512 ext. 103.
