this place is very cultural, indeed. it has a lot of new material that are very up to date. they also have books that are extremely rare, where most librarys no longer carry. a lot of magazine selections from all over the world. nice activities for children too and it's in a nice location. you must pay for parking in the parking garage though.

This place is pretty nice. My cousins go there and they go almost every sunday to check out something. I tagged along once and it had a lot of books. They host events for the children and have story time. Its nice and quiet just like any library. They keep it nice and clean. I saw them again at a festivial and they had a bus of books in there. That was pretty cool as well. They encourage everyone to read.

PROS: great place inside and out
CONS:

the building is pretty big..there are 2 stories to this building. the first floor has the childrens books, and the second floor is more darker and quieter where rules are more strictly enforced...i didnt like that place when i was a kid. the first floor though had alot of books that teach you how to make origami birds and other animals. i enjoyed going there once in a while as a kid, but i havent been there for years...

This is Oakland's main library, and it's not bad! There are dedicated areas for teens, children, and the "regular" library showcasing oodles of books, periodicals, multimedia, and reference materials spreading out over several floors. The librarians are knowledgeable and love to help. The Oakland History Room with old maps and pictures is a lot of fun also.

PROS: It's a library!
CONS: Hours are not the same everyday - check ahead of time.

This place has a lot of book selections and the building looks extremely nice. The building is in a plaza area and outside of the library is a nice fountain. They have wide selections for books and magazine. Although, majority of the magazines are very asian cultured, so if you're asian, then this is the perfect place for you to find book and magazines, even music in your own language. It has a lot of references and a lot of areas to sit down for quiet studies. Sometimes they have different events for kids and the community in there as well.

PROS: nice place, events, a lot of selections.
CONS: majority asian languaged books/mags

This is a really nice library conviniently located right near Lake Merrit and Oaklands, China Town. So its a great place to check out a book and walk around the Lake or get something tasty to eat in China Town. The best part about the Library is the Reading Room on the top floor which is actually quiet enough to read in and is a great place to study. It has tall windows that look out on the Lake and long wooden tables for reading. It's also a great place to meet chess players and pick up a quick game with some really skilled people.
