Did you know that OPL is one of 43 libraries throughout California to be awarded the California Reads grant - to help promote understanding and empathy around the veteran experience? We're working with some partner agencies to plan programs and we're doing an essay contest with Veterans for Peace East Bay. This essay contest for adults and teens is taking submissions now - and the prize for each is a iPad Mini! The guidelines and judging criteria are available here. Good luck and please let me know if you have any questions - you can email me at email@example.com.
The library will be closed on Saturday, July 4th, for Independence Day.
