Long Description:
"San Francisco's seventh and last Carnegie, the Presidio branch, on Sacramento Street between Lyon and Baker streets, is centered on a generous lot which extends through its city block uphill from Sacramento to Clay. The Sacramento Street entrance, with steps rising in three tiers across the lawn to the doorway, is repeated at Clay with stairs downhill past tall lamp standards and around to the front entrance. Landscaping was directed by John McLaren. The brick Classical Revival building was designed by G. Albert Lansburgh. It appeared that rising costs would exceed the remainder of the Carnegie allotment, but even at $83,228 there was a small balance and the trustees successfully petitioned Bertram to use it for a wrought iron fence to protect the elegant McLaren landscaping. Today the library also houses the city's only Library for the Blind." (visit link)
