Every summer, the Friends of the Golden Gate Branch Library treat Oaklanders to a series of Sunday afternoon jazz concerts featuring top-notch local talent. Each show presents a headlining artist at 3pm, followed by a “History of Jazz” discussion (4:30pm) and a youth group performance (5pm). Admission is free and donations to the Friends are welcome. Sponsored by the City of Emeryville and Oakland Public Library.
