Sunset Library Nominated for Landmark Status
The Sunset Branch Library, located at 1305 18th Ave., has been nominated for landmark status by the SF Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board.
The library is one of seven Andrew Carnegie-funded libraries in the City. It was built in 1918 with part of a $750,000 donation to San Francisco from steel-magnate Carnegie, given with the stipulation that half of the money be used for branch libraries.
The Chinatown and Mission branch libraries were nominated for landmark status last year. Chinatown has already been granted the special status. It is expected that all seven Carnegie-funded libraries will be recognized as landmarks.
