About the West Oakland Branch

West Oakland Branch has approximately 27,500 books, compact discs, DVDs, audio books, and magazines and newspapers for all ages. Ciculating materials are largely of popular interest.

Special interest collections include the African American nonfiction collection, a small Veteran's collection, a small Arabic collection for children and adults, and Spanish-language materials for children. The children's side includes a small Chinese and French picture book collection. West Oakland has an extensive children's section focused on providing early literacy materials to children and their parents, as well as a growing teen collection. West Oakland also has graphic novel collections for adults, teens, and children, and a large print collection. A toy lending library for children 0-5 is housed at this location.

The branch is equipped with six computers with internet access available for public use and a study room that can be reserved three (3) months in advance.

The West Oakland Friends Group meets the third (3rd) Saturday of every month except June and December from 3:30pm - 5:00pm.

Every Tuesday from 11:30am-12:00pm the Children's Librarian leads family storytime, followed by free play.
