Field Trip To Oakland Public Library & Oakland History Room

Join Jane Lindsey for a tour of the Oakland Main Library. Dorothy Lazard, Principal Librarian in the Oakland History Room, will discuss the resources available at the Oakland Public Library to assist you with your family research.

Its collection contains a wide variety of materials relating to the history of Oakland and the larger Bay Area, including books, magazines, pamphlets, newspaper clippings, photographs, postcards, sheet music, trade catalogs, and scrapbooks. Following the ninety-minute tour, you are encouraged to stay and do research on your own. The library is open until 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays.

Metered street parking is available in the area and there are several public parking lots nearby, including at the Oakland Museum. The library is 5 blocks north east of the Lake Merritt BART station.
