* An update about Constitutional Amendment ACA-1, which would allow future library ballot measures to pass with a 55% vote
* A panel of Oakland library advocates from multiple groups -- the Friends nonprofit org, Library Commission, Branch Friends and a grass-roots group -- who will talk about how they joined forces to share resources, strategize, and amplify their message to the community (and how that collaboration helped get a parcel tax approved in June 2018).
