Attention - Beginning December 1st, Oakland Public Library will no longer mail hold pickup/cancellation notices. In order to receive information about your holds, please make sure we have your current email or phone number. This change is more environmentally friendly and will reduce mailing costs. Thank you for your cooperation.
Visit the Readers Park for International Park(ing) Day
The Main Library is taking over three paid metered parking lots as part of International Park(ing) Day - to rethink the way streets are used in urban centers, by converting the parking spot into a relaxing reading area! We'll have two story times, at 10:30 AM and 2 PM, with ebook demonstrations and other activities throughout the day! Come read with us, get ideas from librarians for books to read next, and enjoy our temporary park!
