Welcome to Oakland Public Library's Children's Services blog! Here your children's services librarians will feature upcoming events, reading and activity recommendations, and stories about your libraries and the people who love them.
Our "Library People" series will include spotlights on staff, as well as interviews with the many different kinds of people who use the children's materials and services in Oakland libraries. Our favorite people, of course, are you.
Oakland's newest library is the 81st Avenue East Oakland Community Branch, which opened in January 2011 as a joint-use facility with the Oakland Unified School District. We'd like for you to meet that year's graduating 5th grade class from Acorn Woodland Elementary and EnCompass Academy, as they introduce you to their library.
