Let's Bring Back Oakland Bookmobile

Let's Bring Back Oakland Bookmobile

While rewriting the section in my new guide…the section on how to use words (tags) to find information on the World Wide Web, and, using “library advocacy” as an example, I came upon this blog post (about creating National Bookmobile Day during National Library Week 2010):  http://olos.ala.org/columns/?p=17

So, I submitted the following comment to that blog:

Mr. Swendroswki,

Your post regarding the proposal from ALA Subcommittee on Bookmobiles and the approval from ALA Public Awareness Committee to designate April 14, 2010 as National Bookmobile Day brings me joy.  I will share this news with fellow authors and “Save the Libraries” advocates.

In Oakland, CA, we have lost our bookmobile (and other library resources) when City officials passed the budget last year 2009.  Eliminating the Bookmobile has created a huge loss for library patrons, especially kids and seniors.  I invite all Bookmobile lovers/patrons to help by sharing their opinions on http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com.  Please click on” YOUR Bookmobile Story” and share yours. Or email your story to save-the-libraries@live.com.

Thank you, ALA Subcommittee on Bookmobiles and ALA Public Awareness Committee!  I will celebrate all Bookmobiles during National Library Week 2010.

Beloved libraries are homes and community centers for kids, teens, seniors, job-seekers, you and me–anyone who needs a place to access books, resources, the Internet, and, especially librarians’ expertise.

We can all help and have fun at the same time.

In Oakland, CA?

1.  Attend any portion of the June 30, 2009 meeting, 5:00pm–late evening

Oakland City Council Meeting
Check   http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com   for change in meeting time

City Council Chambers at Oakland City Hall

Oakland, CA 94612

2.  Tell friends about:  http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com/

3.  Attend the next Save-the-Library advocacy meeting:

6:00 to 8:00 PM, Oakland Main Library-West Auditorium.   125 14th Street, Oakland, CA

http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com/

Please act now.  June 2009

Who Needs Our Mighty Voices? Library patrons everywhere:

  • Kids who go to these safe places to read and do homework
  • Seniors who make communities solid
  • Unemployed adults using resources and the Internet for job-search

Visit: http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com/

Example:  In Oakland, CA

Elmhurst, Lakeview, Temescal, Golden Gate, Martin Luther King and Melrose branches would only open 2 or 3 days per week!

77.2% of Alameda County voters had voted YES to Measure Q to increase library hours and services, not cut them.

Time sensitive. City of Oakland is scheduled to adopt the two-year budget June 30, impacting 6 libraries.

Council members working hard to do “the right thing” by all Oakland residents. Library advocates say “Thank you!”


HOW CAN WE HELP ?

1.  Attend the Library Advocacy meeting on Thursday, June 25th, 6:00PM to 8:00PM, Oakland Main Library West Auditorium (125 14th Street, Oakland)

2. Sign the on-line petition on http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com/

3.   Email or call  the mayor and council members and tell them to keep all Oakland libraries open at least 5 or 6 days a week.  Their names, phone numbers and email addresses listed below.

4.  Bring friends and neighbors to public meetings about the proposed budget and tell  City of Oakland Council Members in person.  Next meeting  Tuesday, June 30, 2009   Check   http://savethelibraries.spaces.live.com for meeting dates/times, how to sign up to speak, and print a sign: Save the Libraries.

Background:

77.2% of Alameda County voters had voted YES to Measure Q in 2004. http://www.smartvoter.org/2004/03/02/ca/alm/meas/Q/

Let’s remind our mayor and council members that Measure Q was passed to:
(1) maintain and expand neighborhood branch library services, days, and hours; (2) maintain after school homework and tutoring programs; (3) maintain literacy and children’s programs; (4) increase librarian services to schools; (5) increase computer and technology access and (6) acquire new books and materials.

Please keep all Oakland libraries open 5  or 6 days a week!
