A Purple Pajama Storytime (Oakland, Calif)

The City Council may close 14 of Oakland’s neighborhood libraries and reduce services at each of the 4 remaining libraries to 3 days a week!

Oakland Library supporters with kids, have we got a treat for you! A Purple Pajama Storytime, plus PIZZA! Tuesday June 7, 5:30pm, at Oakland's City Hall!

City Council presents their budget recommendations on Tuesday, June 7. At the hearing on May 26, several council members stated that they have no other choice for Oakland's budget than Scenario A, which will close 14 branches (including AAMLO and the Tool Lending Library), en...d Second Start Adult Literacy, and leave only four locations which would be open three days a week with 3-5 staff. At Main, the Children's Room, Oakland History Room, and Teen Zone would close. Children's services, including storytime, would not exist at any location.
