How will funds from Measure C be used?

Answer

Funds will be used to:

  • Prevent library closures and maintain extended hours to better accommodate students, seniors, and working families.
  • Provide safe places and protect programs for children and teens to keep them engaged and prepare them for lifelong learning and successful future careers.
  • Keep libraries safe, clean, and welcoming.
  • Maintain literacy services.
  • Make improvements to keep users and staff safe during the pandemic and beyond.
  • Increase computer and internet access for all.

By law, all funds MUST stay in Oakland and be used only for Oakland libraries.
