The Library a Free for all | June 8, 2010

So with my diminished funds and abundant time on my hands I’ve turned back to my passion for reading.  Before being laid off I had never been to the library for services, sure my job had taken me there once or twice but I’d never checked out a book.  As a friend of FOPL and a follower of the library on twitter I’ve come to learn the full, and I mean FULL, extent of what the library does.  They have computer classes in various languages, they have children’s programs.  Piedmont branch has knitting classes.  Lakeview branch offers chess lessons and solar cooking class.  Eastmont branch has a visiting lawyer for free legal advise.  Chavez branch has a free movie and snacks on the second Saturday of the month. The Asian branch will help you to apply for food stamps. Golden Gate branch has a jazz combo, so go play with others who know how or just drop into listen.  There is so much to do at Oakland area librarys I’m surprised anyone is checking out books! www.oaklandlibrary.org
