Saturday, January 20th will be the second annual Oakland Women's March.
Last year the Mercury News reported that 100,000 people marched here in Oakland. The route goes right by the Main library! We hope to have power restored and be open. If you are planning to visit the library on Saturday, please be aware that parking, and even walking, in the area may be difficult. If we are not open, we will have a table outside the library where you can pick up booklists, flyers, and even do a fun craft.
If you're marching (or if you're interested in reading more about issues being highlighted by the march) we've pulled together some books you might want to take a look at.
