12:30 p.m. | Wednesday, May 18, 2011
San Francisco Public Library’s Branch Library Improvement Program was designed to respond to the current and future needs of library users. Flexible floor plans, multiuse spaces, innovative responses to technological advances and a commitment to sustainable building practices shaped the development of the City’s plans for 24 renovated or new libraries. As library systems nationwide react to the changes of an increasingly digital and diverse society, San Francisco Public Library is responding with facilities that truly serve their unique neighborhood communities, now and in the future. Find out all that SFPL has accomplished in its momentous capital improvement program and what is planned for the next generation of library services in this forum led by San Francisco City Librarian Luis Herrera.
