Get a sneak peek of the MOVe - Oakland Public Library's new mobile library!
Please join us for an exciting inaugural event celebrating our brand new pop-up mobile outreach vehicle - the MOVe!
The Oakland Public Library MOVe is a pop-up mobile library that will improve library access for youth in underserved neighborhoods of Oakland.
This innovative all-electric vehicle will:
- Provide access to books, technology, and innovative programming
- Encourage social gathering by creating a unique and inviting social space
- Foster enjoyment of reading and library use
- Increase awareness of the Oakland Public Library and become part of Oakland’s urban fabric
- Embody and promote Oakland’s creative spirit
Mayor Schaaf will kickoff our celebration at the start of the day and we'll have speeches, activities, a bike repair clinic and fun events all day until 3pm. Come out to celebrate this innovative, one-of-a-kind vehicle that youth in Oakland helped to create!
For more information about the MOVe, please visit oaklandlibrary.org/move.
The Oakland Public Library would like to thank our partners in this project: the Public Works Department with the City of Oakland, Gyroscope, Sheet Metal Alchemist, Motiv, Dragon School, MetWest High School, and the Friends of the Oakland Public Library.
