Re-Opening of North Berkeley Library Saturday April 7th at 1pm

I’ve been watching the new tile roof be installed, the new benches and bike racks being added. The exterior is clean and fresh, but with the wonderful tiles and romanesque details intact. Finally, tomorrow we will all get to see the much-anticipated changes to the interior of this charming neighborhood resource and landmark. I can’t wait to spend some time again indulging in the quiet pleasure of reading garden, or design or travel magazines in this lovely building!

New benches grace the North Berkeley library

This local branch of the public library system was designed 75 years ago d by James Plachek.  According to the library website we can expect  “a sensitive renovation and expansion to improve infrastructure, ADA accessibility and safety features. ” I’m especially pleased to learn that my local Northbrae branch library will now have a lower-level meeting room, complete with AV equipment. The grand reopening celebration will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Library services will begin at 2 p.m.  Local and state officials will be on hand, along with music and light refreshments from Indie Cakes. The public is invited–see you there!
