Effective November 1, 2014, days of service at two Oakland Public Library branches—Golden Gate and Piedmont Avenue—will revert to Tuesday to Saturday.
The change is the result of a pilot program that began in September 2013 to offer library hours on Mondays in more areas of Oakland. Library Administration encouraged public feedback on the new schedules through an online and paper survey (April 15-May31), comment cards, and community meetings. Administration’s evaluation of the community’s responses and data on library usage at the pilot branches led to the decision to end the new schedules at the Golden Gate and Piedmont Avenue branches.
Two additional branches were part of the pilot. Brookfield and Eastmont branches will remain on the Monday to Friday schedule. As always, you can see branch schedules on our website.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback during the pilot.
