Oakland, CA: Activists Take Over Abandoned Library and Opens For the Public


Quote from the article: "I think everyone in the community is psyched this will no longer be a dumping ground," said Jaime Silva, 43, one of the organizers.

Silva and other activists say the goal is for the building to be used for a community purpose, whether it's a library or a community center with a garden.
