The Berkeley Public Library is redesigning three of its outposts — the South Branch library  on Russell and MLK Way, the Claremont library on Benvenue at Ashby and the North Branch on The Alameda (above) — and is holding meetings where the public can see the designs the assigned architectural teams have come up with.

On Wednesday February 10 at 6:30 pm Field Paoli will present the latest design for South Branch, and Gould Evans/Baum Thornley will present an update on the Claremont Branch library. The meeting will be at the South Branch library at 1901 Russell Street.

On February 24, the Architectural Resources Group will present developed drawings for the North Branch library. The meeting is from 6:30 to 8 pm at the North Branch library at 1170 The Alameda.
