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!
