National Night Out is an event held all over the country. It is designed to get people out of their houses and into their communities, to meet their neighbors and promote public safety. And also, sometimes to accomplish these things, there must be root beer floats. This year it’s the 30th anniversary, and the Library is joining Pittsburgh in celebration, with activities at libraries all over the city!
At the Main Library in Oakland, we’re planning a Root Beer Float Social on the Library Lawn, and inviting all those who work, play, visit, live in, or just love the neighborhood.
Join the festivities, hang by our community garden,* create a superhero cape, listen to some music, meet your neighbors and more!
You can learn more about community building at the Library of course, with books like Pocket Neighborhoods.
*Rain location: First Floor of the Library
Hope to see you out and about on National Night Out!
