Upcoming Branch Schedule Change!

Beginning November 1st, 2014, the Golden Gate and Piedmont Ave. Branches will revert to a Tuesday - Saturday schedule.

Effective November 1, 2014,  days of service at two Oakland Public Library branches—Golden Gate and Piedmont Avenue—will revert to Tuesday to Saturday.

The change is the result of a pilot program that began in September 2013 to offer library hours on Mondays in more areas of Oakland. Library Administration encouraged public feedback on the new schedules through an online and paper survey (April 15-May31), comment cards, and community meetings. Administration’s evaluation of the community’s responses and data on library usage at the pilot branches led to the decision to end the new schedules at the Golden Gate and Piedmont Avenue branches.

Two additional branches were part of the pilot.  Brookfield and Eastmont branches will remain on the Monday to Friday schedule.  As always, you can see branch schedules on our website

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback during the pilot.

Loved the Monday evenings at

Loved the Monday evenings at Piedmont. Terrible to see it end. But we want the libraries open on Saturday too. What country/state/city are we living in that we cannot have the libraries open six days a week?

We're disappointed to learn

We're disappointed to learn this! We had a rhythm of going to the Piedmont Library every Monday and will really miss that possibility - it's the only other library within reasonable walking distance and we don't have a car.
