Made possible by a Friends of the Oakland Public Library mini-grant, Check Your Shelf: The Oakland Public Library Podcast, invites listeners to take an inside look at OPL. Co-hosts Amy Martin (Community Relations) and Paul Overton (Main Teen Zone) bring you inside the walls to get to know the library as a friend. The first season will feature six episodes diving into the different programs and initiatives that make OPL truly special.
