I noticed today that the library on Kimball and Foster has been demolished. There was another library building almost identical to it on the corner of Fullerton and Sheffield which was demolished in the '90s.

Were these the only ones of their kind in the city?

The library on the 6400 block of N California, constructed around 1962, is of a similar vintage as the demolished bulding in Albany Park. The current library replaced a storefront facility which was located on Devon a few doors west of Washtenaw.
