From what they told me, weekend slots get booked very fast. So I think we should apply for one well in advance. Does anyone have suggestions for what date would work best? Saturday afternoons tend to work for most people, in which case we have a choice between 9/7 and 9/21. Personally, any other weekend is fine with me as well.

Thanks. I stopped by the Historical Society last week but the reception was not warm. They said they cannot have meetings in their space, and they do not have wifi available. So it looks like BPL and campus are our best bets.

They also told me that we should not have trouble with eligibility as
long as the person doing the registration is a Berkeley resident. Does
this look like a good option? I think either the 9/7 or 9/21 Saturdays
could work fine.

Best,
Shreyas
