Join the Check It Out Book Club

Each month, folks who donate monthly or give $250+ annually to the Oakland Literacy Coalition will receive book recommendations specially curated by Oakland school library staff members as a way to say thank you for your support.

We’ll clue you in on lesser known titles that are huge hits with Oakland kids for you to share with the young people (and young at heart) in your life. Expect to see OLC values of diversity, equity, representation, and fun reflected in each one.

Your monthly gifts help the OLC to plan our programs ahead, knowing we can count on your sustained generosity.

Order a READ shirt or hoodie and rep the OLC!

Tee shirts and hoodies are available in a range of adult and youth sizes through our online Bonfire store.




Company/Employee Matching Gift 

Your company may match your gift to the OLC! Check with your Human Resources person or department to ask whether your company will help make your gift go farther.
