    Huge thank you to the staff at Oakland's Captricity for their donation of Safeway, Lucky and Walgreen's gift cards to help our families in need. We are beyond excited about the partnership we are developing with this wonderful organization. You'll get to meet many of the Captricity staff as they volunteer at our Family Literacy Night on February 9, 2017. Thank you again, Captricity, for modeling what an Oakland company can be.


    About the Under the Sea Art the deep Sea creatures that you see in the Franklin Library come from the talented team at FLAX art & craft in downtown Oakland. Every year on the last Saturday of July, FLAX hosts their annual Kidsfest with a different theme each year. These creatures were from their 2016 Deep Sea Adventure! Longtime FLAX employee and professional artist, Crystal Gonzalez created these FLAX decorations for kids to enjoy and now they can spark your imagination at this OUSD Library as FLAX’s gift to our students. Thank you, FLAX!
