To celebrate the publication of the Oakland Public Library's 2015-2016 Annual Report, we're having a contest!  Answer the seven questions on the following page correctly and be entered into our weekly drawings for a $20 gift certificate to the Friends of the Oakland Public Library's Bookmark Bookstore in Old Oakland (721 Washington Street).

Drawings will take place at noon each Friday of February, 2017.  All entries with 100% correct responses will be entered into each of the drawings -- there is no need to resubmit each week.  Please note:  Current library employees and their immediate family members are not eligible to win prizes, although they are welcome to take the quiz!

Do you need a hint or two?  Check out our 2015-16 Annual Report, online now at
