For safety reasons, libraries close when the inside temperature reaches 87 degrees. In the coming hot days, call ahead or check back here to make sure your branch is open!
Join us for a dynamic, youth-driven day of programming about our swiftly transforming city and the role of local history and memory.
Programming will include:
- sidewalk interviews
- spoken word performance
- a youth panel discussion highlighting the voices of Youth Beat journalists, Oakland Library Youth Poet Laureates and participants of Beat Within
- zine making
It will all happen on vibrant staging created by marksearch to contextualizes the conversations.
