North Oakland library reopening after renovation

from the Contra Costa Times

“The historic branch library on San Pablo Avenue in North Oakland was closed last year for repairs, and it is now open once again. A public celebration is planned at 10 a.m. Feb. 21. The Oakland City Council in July approved a construction budget of $163,000 to pay for restoration of deteriorated windows and other renovations to the Georgian revival-style landmark building, originally constructed in 1917-18 and known as the Golden Gate Branch.”
