OPL @ the 2023 Fatherhood Summit

OPL was a sponsor of the Alameda County Fatherhood Summit on Oct 21st. Staff created a library lounge with free books and activities, hosted a job fair booth, and spoke at a Father to Father panel discussion. The library lounge was, by far, the best and most visited booth at the Fatherhood Summit. 👏🏾

✨ We are happy that staff shared their experience with the Fathers Circle happening at our branch! ✨
