For the past several weeks we have been honoring the citizens and institutions of Oakland in our children's programming. Public Works has sponsored the annual Re-Create art competition, with free workshops by Pro Arts at OPL branch libraries. Goofball the Magician and Chabot Space & Science Center have helped us commemorate Lunar New Year in a new way.
Next up is our annual celebration of African American Heritage Month.
The children's librarians at Oakland Public Library wanted to celebrate this year with something both pithy and entertaining. We could not have made a better choice. Kirk Waller "owns" a trunkful of tales and lives in each story as he tells it. He almost literally transports us to live there with him.
Join us as we celebrate African American Heritage Month with Kirk Waller.
