Listener feedback: One year later, the People’s Library transforms into a community space


Several listeners called to leave us messages about the recent story we aired about Oakland's People's Library. Here is what two of them had to say:

FELICIA SMITH: All I gotta say about the library and the garden is, that's really great, however, they need to clean up the garbage and start there. If you don't clean up the garbage, nothing else is going to happen. You gotta clean up the garbage. Totally. Totally spick-and-span. Clean it all up and start from there.

HELEN COHEN: I just heard the piece on the radio about the East Oakland People's Library and it's clear that it should once again be a library community center and community garden.  I hope Oakland actually ends up funding that.
