If you have received a notice of fines in your email, it may be for fines that have been on your account for a very long time, not for new fines. We have just begun sending out quarterly notices to patrons with outstanding balances on their accounts. We apologize for the confusion. Beginning now, you will receive these notices every 3 months. Thank you.
Sean's Shadow Puppets and Scary Tales
Sean Powers brings his art of shadow puppetry to Oakland Public Libraries for Halloween. He will perform Fool Me Once, a scary Chinese tale about deception and its folly. Afterwards he always spends time showing his puppets and answering questions about how he does his art. .
