Golden Gate Library
Local Collection

Take a look at prototypes for a new series of books only at the Golden Gate Library! The Local Collection, an eight book series of neighborhood information, is a key part of Commons Archive. Current titles include a previously unpublished research paper about African American history in Oakland from the 1850s to the 1980s, transcripts of neighbor interviews from 2015, and a long-time neighbor’s journal documenting his entry into the community.
