In November 2008, Berkeley voters approved the passage of Measure FF, a $26 million bond measure to improve the four branch libraries. As a result, the Berkeley Public Library embarked on a Branch Library Improvement Program in 2009.

Over the next five years Claremont and North branches were remodeled and expanded while South/Tool Lending Library and West branches were demolished and rebuilt. The program was completed in December 2013.
