There was a birthday bash April 7 for one of the Sunset District’s oldest cultural institutions, the Sunset Branch Library. It cost $44,000 to build the two-story “Carnegie” library, which is designed
in the Italiante style. Its location, at 1305 18th Ave., is the site of an old barn that was a public nuisance because youth used it for target shooting with guns. The library was retrofitted and
upgraded over a three-year stretch and reopened in 1995, with public computers and new children’s area. In the photo above, students from San Francisco schools perform the Mongolian
Dance. In the photo below, Ana Yoshida plays on a computer. Photos: John Oppenheimer.
