Happy New Year from the OLC!

Dear First Name,

We would like to wish you a Happy New Year and a wonderful welcome into 2022! As we settle back into our routines and work, there is a feeling of anticipatory excitement as we look forward to more opportunities to engage in critical conversation and learning. Especially around how we can continue to increase book access and help every Oakland child learn and love to read. Take a peek below and join the conversation!
