It's Your Library—Online.
The Oakland Public Library is thrilled to introduce you to our new website. Take a look around!
Here are some of the features we're most excited about:
- Our new website is mobile friendly and easy to use on any device.
- You can search the catalog, website, FAQs, or events.
- When you search the catalog, “smart search” makes it just like searching the web—enter just what you're looking for and find it quickly.
- Our new header navigation is intuitive and based on natural language. Look for books, movies, and other content under Read Listen Watch, stuff for kids under Grow & Play, things to do under See & Do, and things you can learn under Learn.
- You can use geolocation to find the library that’s closest to you, or see a list of all locations.
- We’ve made expanded presences for our special collection locations: Oakland History Center, Oakland Tool Lending Library, and the African American Museum and Library at Oakland.
- Filter events by date, location, type, who's going, or language to see a custom list, or search for the event you want.
- Find answers to your questions easily by searching or browsing our FAQs.
- In the new catalog, you can:
- Rate and review items
- Make lists for yourself or to share
- Set up custom shelves to keep track of your reading
- Follow other users, including Oakland Public Library staff!
