Mission Statement

Provide every Oakland Unified School District student access to a quality school library.


Friends of the Oakland Public School Library organized because fiscal exigencies in OUSD resulted in closing school libraries, a vital educational resource. Among our goals are the following: 1. Work closely with OUSD Library Services and support all schools in OUSD to restore school libraries. 2. Ensure an up-to-date library at every OUSD school. 3. Upgrade and maintain upgraded OUSD libraries. 4. Build local/staff/parent support/ownership for school libraries. 5. Build community support for OUSD school libraries through education and involvement.
