Library of the future

HMB Library 1_by Don Nolte

Librarians, county employees, Half Moon Bay city leaders, and architects gathered to celebrate the Green Building Award presented by Sustainable San Mateo County and the American Institute of Architects of San Mateo County on April 4 to the Half Moon Bay Library for its sustainable design. Opened in August 2018, the library was built by a partnership comprising the City of Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County Libraries, and the County of San Mateo. It was designed by Noll & Tam Architects of Berkeley and built by BHM Construction, Inc. of Napa. (Photo by Don Nolte)

Seems the "library of the future" emphasizes all sorts of feel-good niceties to the detriment of a decent book collection. If Bill Collins lived on the Midcoast or in HMB, he would have some choice conclusions about this, in reality, community, day-care, and after-school hangout in the guise of a "library." In spite of all the county money poured into the building, the unincorporated Midcoast, with a population that rivals HMB's, got screwed by the location in far-away, traffic-clogged HMB. Several of us in Moss Beach will continue to use the good little Sanchez library in Pacifica for most of our library services.
