Olga Loya

Join us for stories in English and Spanish by Olga Loya!

Storyteller Olga Loya was captivated by the vivid stories her Mexican grandmother and father would tell. Absorbing all of their secrets and following the tendrils of memory that bind people and families, Olga fashioned and invented for herself, out of her own substance and imagination, a stirring universe of creation. With her poetic eloquence Olga's stories are an impassioned quest to keep alive not only the fabric of her family but the larger Latino culture, richly robed in folktales, ancient myths, and history. There are personal tales, short stories inspired from a mix of newspaper and dream, healing stories, tales of extraordinary women, of myriad voices and inflections, and sometimes music and dance. 

 

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library — San Lorenzo Area. 

This program will be held in our Greenhouse Community Room.

Free legal assistance is provided by a volunteer lawyer from the Alameda County Bar Association. The attorney will consult to define your problem, advise you of your options, get you started with a solution, and make a referral when needed. 

The Dublin Library will start taking sign-ups for the Lawyer in the Library one week before the lawyer's appearance. Advance registration is required.

In registering for an appointment, you agree to the following limitations and conditions:

  • Your appointment must be used to talk about your own legal issues.
  • Your appointment is for a maximum 15 minutes. 
  • You must arrive 5 minutes early to check in at the Reference Desk to secure your appointment. Latecomers forfeit their appointment.

  • This free consultation is not intended to, and does not establish, a continuing attorney/client relationship.  The volunteer attorney can only provide brief consultation and referrals (as necessary). The volunteer will not represent you in any matter.   

If you understand and agree to these terms, you may ask to sign up for a 15-minute appointment at the Adult Reference Desk or by calling 925-803-7252.
