It is Summer and Your Library is Open!
This Saturday kids turned out all over Oakland to help kick-off the Summer Reading Program. Bubble-parties at many branches let families enjoy the sunshine with each other and their books, and a bike meet-up at the Main Library pedaled over to the West Oakland branch to enjoy an incredible Scraper Bike workshop with Tyrone "Baybe Champ" Stevenson.
What's next? Check out the listings for your favorite performers and activites, or look to see what's happening this week at your branch. Branch libraries are closed today, Tuesday June 18th, for the last City of Oakland Mandatory Business Closure Day of the fiscal year; but will reopen on Wednesday, when many of them will start serving Summer Free Lunch for kids and teens. (The Main Library is open Tuesday).
But you don't have to wait to sign up for the Summer Reading game to win prizes for your reading! More than 1,000 children signed up this Saturday. Have you?
