Potrero Branch Library reopening set for March 6 

Mayor Gavin Newsom and Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, among others, are expected to be on location at the Potrero Branch Library on Saturday, March 6, at 1 p.m.to celebrate the grand reopening of the branch.

During Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Maxwell is expected to introduce a resolution making the occasion.

The branch was originally built in 1951 and the work has expanded the space by 33 percent. It is now seismically safe and fully accessible, according a draft of the resolution. Also, the library has “an expanded upper level, spectacular views of the City skyline, new accessible restrooms, seismic upgrading, technological updating, a separate Teen Area, Children’s Area with a Play-to-Learn interactive wall, new furnishings, sustainable energy features, a public art sculpture, new elevator and staircase, an updated books and materials collection, and a Program Room with built-in media equipment for library programs and after-hours access for community use.”

The work was done as part of the San Francisco Public Library’s BLIP program.
