Next week, the Oakland Public Education Fund is sponsoring an African American Literature Read In in the schools and is looking for volunteers. If you can volunteer to read in a school next week, it is not too late to sign up.
In support of the Read In, and in celebration of Black History month, all Oakland Public Library storytimes next week (February 2-7) will highlight African American authors, illustrators, and characters.
We strive for diversity in our collections and storytimes every day of the year and are excited to support next week's activities. We look forward to seeing you.
You can browse and place holds for some of our favorites books for next week right here.
