Branch Improvement Program
The Branch Library Improvement program that began in 2009 is the result of the passage of Measure FF in November 2008, a $26 Million bond measure to fund the four branch libraries. Help plan your Safe, Accessible Libraries for the future. Regular reports on the status of the projects and bond budget are available from the Board of Library Trustee meeting agendas, reports and minutes.
BranchVan service to Rosa Parks School will stop at the end of the day, Wednesday, November 27, 2013. Hours of service on this day only will be 2:30PM - 5:30PM
West Branch can be selected as a pickup location for holds beginning Friday, December 13, 2013.
If you have holds with a pickup location of BranchVan, you can change their pickup location to West Branch, but must do this before the hold is “ready for pickup.” You may do this via “My Library Account” online at www.berkeleypubliclibrary.org or by asking a staff member for assistance.
The BranchVan will deliver holds and pick up returns at designated stops near branches when they are closed for construction.
