The Old and The New

OPL is examining our past at three branch history events. Attend all three and get a prize!

Local history buffs take note!  Three Oakland Public Library branches – Montclair, Dimond, and Brookfield – are offering talks to examine and discuss the history of each respective branch.  Attend all three and you get a small prize.  A PRIZE!  WOOHOO!


(Note:  Prize will absolutely NOT be a stuffed bird.)



These particular branches were chosen because they are each scheduled to undergo improvements over the next couple of years. Funded by private donations, the interior improvements are expected to make these locations more welcoming to the public. When looking towards the future, it is always nice to also remember the past. So, come join us to learn more about the history – and perhaps a bit about the future – of each of these neighborhood libraries.

The first event will be at the Montclair Branch on Tuesday, March 18th at 6pm.

The second in the series will be at the Dimond Branch on the following Tuesday, March 25th, at 7pm.  

The final event will be at the Brookfield Branch on Monday, March 31st at 6pm.

Dorothy Lazard and Kathleen DiGiovanni, librarians from the Oakland History Room, will present the talks, and I promise they'll be good!  Hope to see you there.
