Best Library

Dimond Branch

Oakland is a great library town. With 20 libraries to choose from, everyone in The Town can have his or her own favorite spot to check out free books, DVDs, eBooks, and music. But the Dimond Branch stands above the rest, with an excellent staff, terrific kids programs, and materials that are extremely well suited for the local population, including Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, and LGBT special interest collections. Dimond also has a great selection of car repair manuals, comic books, and movies, thanks to its emphasis on practical how-to topics. The newest offering is the Seed Lending Library where visitors can check out and return seeds. Definitely a branch to visit if you’re looking to expand your library horizons.
