If you have received a notice of fines in your email, it may be for fines that have been on your account for a very long time, not for new fines. We have just begun sending out quarterly notices to patrons with outstanding balances on their accounts. We apologize for the confusion. Beginning now, you will receive these notices every 3 months. Thank you.
Students in Oakland are invited to participate in the 2012 Re-Create Art Contest, Oakland’s annual recycled art competition. Participants will use discarded or reused materials in a creative application of the 4Rs - reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot. All students in grades K-12 are eligible to participate in the contest. Fifteen prizes valued at $500 will be awarded to students who enter this year’s contest and exhibition.
