Oakland Library

“It’s absolutely a community center, that’s how the role of the library everywhere is changing … We’re becoming more than just a place to go get books. It’s still place where you can come and get books and it’s still a place where you can work quietly, but we offer more than that – spaces where you can come and take advantage of technology you might not have access to otherwise, spaces to take or give a class, where you can have a concert, a play, a performance, a place where you can rehearse for something, where you can [take steps to] start a non-profit.”
