Outdoor Adventure Backpacks
In partnership with the East Bay Regional Parks District, the Oakland Public Library will be offering backpacks available for checkout full of cool stuff that people can use to enjoy our regional parks. The Dimond Branch (3565 Fruitvale Ave.) is piloting the checkout of the backpacks and is currently the only location to offer this service.
Patrons will be able to place a hold on these backpacks by asking staff, and the backpacks can only be checked out and returned at the Dimond Branch. The Dimond Branch has five backpacks available for checkout.
Each backpack has:
- An East Bay Regional Park District Membership Card
- Free parking pass
- 101 Great Hikes book
- 5 Bay Area nature ID guides
- Set of binoculars
