Alameda Free Library

this seems cool and closed right now, but maybe library takeout is operating. i’m across the st getting the car smogged lol and saw the building and it says “alameda free library” carved under the windows so i looked it up. let’s add this to the list of things to check out when pandemic lockdown is over!

what is the difference between a free library and a library lol? is this one not run by a government or something?
