Noe Valley Library Wins Preservation Award

451 Jersey St, San Francisco
Historic Noe Valley Library Receives Preservation Award

The San Francisco Public Library, the Department of Public Works and the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library received the 2008 Governor's Historic Preservation Award on Friday for their efforts to restore the Noe Valley Branch Library.

The 1916 Carnegie landmark library, which reopened to the public in March, underwent an extensive renovation that included repair of an ornamental ceiling, cleaning of a brick and terra cotta facade, new lighting, and refinishing of tables, chairs and shelving.

"The city is proud to be recognized for the diligent and careful restoration work that went into this beautiful and significant branch," city librarian Luis Herrera said.

The Noe Valley Library is located at 451 Jersey St.
