African American quilts  This month’s display is provided by the African American Quilt Guild of Oakland.  The Guild was created to preserve and continue the tradition of quilting.  Their goal is to contribute to the knowledge and appreciation of fine quilts and quilting.  The group meets on the 4th Saturday of each month at the West Oakland Public Library, 1801 Adeline St. Oakland, CA.   Castro Valley resident Marion Coleman coordinated the display.  She is one of the artists whose work has been selected to be a permanent part of the new Castro Valley Library.  The Display will be in the library until February 22nd and will help us celebrate Black History Month.

 The Homework Center is busy every Monday through Thursday from 3:30 until 5:00 with students seeking assistance with their assignments. Dorothy and Cheri, both retired Oakland school teachers, are our Homework Center co-ordinators, and they are great–but they can’t do it alone! If you are a high school or college student who would like to help, stop by the library to talk to them, or call 670-6280 to find out how to apply.

barack-and-hillary.jpgIn an effort to create an informal local political poll, we put a new biography of Barack Obama and a new biography of Hillary Clinton on our new book shelf, and watched to see which would be taken out first.  A lot of people stopped by and looked through both books, but finally one was taken.  It was the Hillary Clinton book!

We now have a John McCain biography and a Rudy Giuliani biography on display.  We’ll report back and let you know which one goes first.
