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.
Author Talk: Oakland in Popular Memory
Matt Werner will read from his new book Oakland in Popular Memory, about artists putting a new "there" in Oakland.

Additionally, Matt will talk about how he printed and hand-bound the books locally.
Matt Werner is the author of Papers for the Suppression of Reality and Oakland in Popular Memory, both published by Thought Publishing. His writing has been published by Oakland Local, McSweeney’s, and theRumpus.net.
