Long Description:
"For Golden Gate Valley, the fourth San Francisco Carnegie, a 50'x125' corner lot was purchased for $9000, of which $1500 was raised by residents of the area. Noted architect Ernest Coxhead designed the Italian Renaissance building which resembles a Roman basilica with its long narrow rectangle and curved apse visible on three sides. In a residential area in the Marina, south of Lombard Street at the corner of Octavia and Green streets, the library is sited immediately adjacent to the sidewalk. It was completed at a cost of $43,000." (visit link)
