“The new 9,000-square-foot space has windows that go from the floor to the 15-foot-high ceiling and is one of only two branches to have a living roof, which can be partially seen from inside. It will have twice as many books as the old branch, a space for teenagers already stocked with manga and 25 computers for public use, up from only six before. The history of the Bayview is also a focus, with Afrocentric tiles on the walls and panels outside that show landmarks like Sam Jordan’s bar and the shipyards.”
