Long Description:
"Opened in 1927 as a Deposit Station, Portola Branch library was the 14th branch established in the San Francisco Public Library System. Previously located in leased sites on San Bruno Avenue, the Portola Branch opened in its permanent building at 380 Bacon Street (at Goettingen Street) on February 28, 2009. Portola is the second of four leased-facility branches to open in a new City-owned building. The 6,300 Square foot library features a north-facing view garden, natural lighting from skylights, and a stunning glass-shutter public art work by Dana Zed. The building was designed by the architectural team of Stoner Meek/Noll and Tam." (visit link)
