Measure K and District 1: Improving Our Community
Tech, Other Upgrades for South City's Century-Old Library
Two grants totaling $900,000 helped South San Francisco renovate its century-old Grand Avenue Branch Library that serves the downtown and the primarily low-income neighborhoods nearby. The 8,000-square-foot library was the city's first thanks to a $10,000 grant from industrialist-turned-philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. South San Francisco celebrated the library's grand reopening on Oct. 15, 2016.
