We apologize for the recent disruption of service, and are pleased to report that the power has been restored to the Main Library. All locations have resumed normal operations. We appreciate the community's support and patience over the past few days.
Draw, Read, Eat!
All of his Oakland Public Library appearances will include a short read-aloud and tips on how to draw. Additionally, a free, healthy lunch will be served to youths ages 0–18, as part of the Free Summer Lunch Program held at many Oakland Library locations. Free Summer Lunch is provided by the Alameda County Food Bank in partnership with the City of Oakland.
