Wooden Table Cafe

I'd like to thank Wooden Table Cafe who donated two gift cards that we raffled off at last Saturday's Spanish Book Club ONLINE meeting. Their cafe specializes in Argentine treats like their famous Alfajores cookies as well as other items. Their gifts were perfect since we had just finished reading "El tunel" by Argentine writer Ernesto Sabato. And big thanks to one of our newest members and newly hired Librarians, Pati Moran, from MLK Branch, who came up with this great idea!! Pete V.

Wooden Table Cafe serves Argentinean treats, food and drink and provides a sweet little place to gather.

OPL staff have been serving as Disaster Service Workers (DSWs) throughout the pandemic. Disaster Service Workers serve communities in Oakland in a variety ways. While Your Library branches stay closed, we're working online and offline to support you in all the ways we can.💕

Josh Armstrong, Librarian, Melrose: "When we first had our orientation about the Alameda County Community Food Bank, they said that 1 in 3 people in Oakland were food insecure. And those numbers were *before* the pandemic! That really struck me! But now City workers are working hard everyday to get as much food ready to distribute as possible. We are going so hard that we have almost doubled our output goal!"

a veces no tenemos tiempo para leer, afortunadamente tenemos muchos libros buenos para escuchar

Murmullo de las abejas
por Sofía Segovia

El murmullo de las abejas huele a lavanda, a ropa hervida con jabón blanco, a naranjas y miel: una historia impredecible de amor y de entrega por una familia, por la vida, por la tierra y por un hermano al que se ha esperado siempre, pero también, la de una traición que puede acabarlo todo.
