Spring has sprung and we are ready for a break.
We will be open this Thursday (3/26), then closed until Tuesday (4/14).
Our last day before summer vacation will be Tuesday, June 9th.
This is going to be a giant celebration of literacy and this is your golden opportunity to volunteer with us. WE NEED HELP on Friday, 6/5, Saturday, 6/6 & Sunday 6/7
Lacuna will debut at the Bay Area Book Festival in June 2015. Our booth will be near the Lacuna so we need volunteers to help restock both areas. You can help kids choose great books or just restock both areas so that kids will have lots of choices. Then you can wonder over to campus to meet over 200 world class authors.
Lacuna is an interactive public art installation that celebrates our love of books and reading. Composed of 50,000 books, Lacuna creates a welcome space for people to discover and enjoy a new book amongst fellow book-lovers. Whether a person wanders Lacuna’s open-air walls filled with books or lounges with one at the center of the installation, Lacuna invites participants to remove books from its walls and contribute to the structure.
On Friday, the Lacuna Art structure will be delivered. All 50,000 books will have to be placed on the structure. This is a wonderful opportunity for teenagers who have a service learning requirement or a civic organization. If you want to volunteer or know of group that wants to help, please contact the Bay Area Book Festival directly.
If you want to help us on Saturday and/or Sunday, you can contact us through this website.
We are open every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-6 PM.
Our address is:
955 12th St, Oakland, 94607
Please remember to bring boxes and bags for your books.
