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!
PALF's website is no longer online. For ongoing support of our libraries please visit the Friends of the Palo Alto Library (FOPAL) website here: https://www.fopal.org

Main Library
1213 Newell Road
Built: 1958

Main Library is our second busiest library in terms of people who visit and the number of books and other materials that are checked out. It is the right size for the people it serves, but has inadequate lighting, heating, cooling, and electrical systems. It also lacks places for people to work together and for programs to be offered.

The proposed improvements at Main are to renovate the building's lighting, heating, cooling, and electrical systems, add four small rooms under the eaves for group study, and build a 100-person program room. These improvements are contingent on the bond passing in November 2008.

The future of Main Library
