Hi there!
You're viewing the archived version of the website used in the successful campaign for Palo Alto's Measure N Library Bond in November 2008. The Palo Alto Library Foundation (PALF) lead the bond campaign and now leads a fundraising campaign to fill our new libraries with books, technology, and furniture!

Library Plans Overview

The City of Palo Alto is committed to revitalizing all five of our libraries. Our libraries are well-used, but our facilities are the worst in the area City Auditor's report, July 2007 (PDF - 0.4 MB) . While two libraries have already been improved, the remaining three require substantial construction work to provide the level of service we expect in our city. Click on the libraries listed at the left to see the plans for each.
