Oakland Wiki Edit Party
Oakland Wiki is a community website about Oakland that anybody can contribute to. Oakland Public Library is hosting a series of neighborhood "edit parties" where Oakland Wiki volunteers will help people share what they know about Oakland (it's very easy - no computer experience necessary!). You can add information about:
- What your neighborhood is like
- Your family's history and experiences
- Cultural events and history
- Fun things to do
- Anything else you think other people should know about Oakland
This event at 81st Ave. Branch will focus on the community gardens project at Tassafaronga, and community organizing issues.
