Joaquin Miller Elementary

Bookstores and libraries throughout the bay area are giving out free comic books on Saturday. 

It looks like most branches of Oakland Public Library will be participating. They have indicated that they'll have comics for younger kids for the first time.  Here's some OPL info:
