Why You Shouldn’t Go to the Public Library on Sunday, December 14
It’s a common mistake.
I was in the middle of an epic week of reading, writing, and researching when I found myself in a library, in the dark, with only the sound of books on the shelves.
I’m talking about the Public Libraries on Sunday.
They were the only place I could go to on Sunday and Monday.
There were no bars, no liquor, no restaurants.
I found a seat in the back of a bookish, hippie-themed cafe, where I read my favorite books for the first time.
I sat down and waited.
For a moment, I thought I was going to have a great time.
Then the lights went down, the music stopped, and the sound stopped.
I had to go.
I did not have the right to stay in the library, which meant I had no way of getting home.
And there was no money.
The public library has always been my first stop, and it was my only option.
For decades, I’ve tried to use my library card to go to the library on Sundays.
I’ve made the effort to book as many classes as I can and then take a few days off work.
I tried to do it every year, but it was always just a bit too much work.
And now, I don’t even have the option to book.
I have to wait for the city to get a permit.
The city says the permit process is supposed to take about six months.
But I don and never will have a chance to get in, because the city has yet to sign off on it.
I think I’m finally going to be able to get my library cards back.
That’s because I’m a member of the Oakland Public Library Board of Directors.
The Board of the Public, which oversees the city’s public libraries, is made up of elected officials, and there are now eight members on the Board of Trustees.
I’d been in the public library for six months, but the city was still going to allow me to book in my library.
I asked for help from other members of the Board, and they agreed to do this.
The board has been making its case to the city for months.
It’s been in regular meetings, and on the first day of meetings, the Board presented the city with a request to issue a permit for the public libraries.
The City Council has been hearing this request on a regular basis.
After a lengthy and complicated process, the city issued the permits on February 10.
I went into the Public Works Building on Friday afternoon, and as I left the building, I saw the Mayor, City Council President, City Attorney, and Public Works Director.
The staff were all very cordial and kind, and I told them I was happy to be getting my library back.
I thanked them for all their help.
And then I went to my office.
The Public Libraries are a nonprofit organization that was established in 1969, and has been in business since 1877.
The mission is to promote a vibrant and inclusive environment for all Oakland residents and visitors to the City of Oakland.
The library system is an important part of that vision, and while I’ve never had a library card, I was able to book at the Public libraries because the City Council approved their request.
I knew it would be difficult for me to get back in.
But it’s also important to remember that I didn’t do this for free.
I made a commitment to the public that I’d go back to the libraries for as long as it took, and my time at the library was my time to show my support.
As an advocate for public libraries in Oakland, I’m also a member, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.
I hope the City and the Board will make the right decision and grant me a permit to book, but in the meantime, I will continue to use the public services provided at the public spaces of Oakland to make a difference for people in need.
