Long Description:
"For the third Carnegie branch, in Noe Valley, a larger lot could be purchased for less than in the nearby crowded Mission district. Located in a residential area between Castro and Diamond streets on Jersey Street, which runs parallel to and between 24th and 25th streets, west of Dolores Street, the library is set back from the sidewalk on its lot which slopes up hill from a high retaining wall bordering the sidewalk. John Reid Jr. designed the Classical Revival brick building which was constructed at a cost of $37,499. The tall rectangular building under a low gable tiled roof, is faced with brick laid in a tapestry pattern. Five large windows framed together and slightly recessed, are separated by slim columns resting on one long sill." (visit link)
