North Branch Berkeley Library & Nearby Curiosities

North Branch Berkeley Library & Nearby Curiosities
Saturday, August 11 @ 10 a.m.
Start: North Berkeley Library (1170 The Alameda)
Leader: Colleen Neff
We will begin our walk with a brief tour of this recently rehabilitated and expanded architectural gem, a Berkeley City Landmark built in 1936. We then will meander through the yard-art rich surrounding neighborhoods, where many whimsical discoveries await us, including Mark Olivier’s creative beach-trash sculptures.  Along the way, we will pass several Little Free Libraries, so bring a book to exchange if you would like. After about two hours, we will return to our start. This walk will proceed at a leisurely pace on sidewalks with only a few small hills to climb.
