The foundation is currently raising $4 million to fill our libraries with furniture, fixtures, technology, books, and electronic resources not covered by the bond measure. To date we have raised $3.8 million with $200,000 left to fill the gap.
Please help us cross the finish line by making a gift today! Make your check payable to Palo Alto Library Foundation and mail to PO Box 181, Palo Alto, CA, 94302, or make a donation online at www.palf.org.
Today, PALF is presenting the City Council with a check for $1.9 million to fully fund all the furniture, technology, and materials needed for the Mitchell Park Library and Community Center to reopen in 2012.

The campaign has received more than 800 donations so far, ranging in size from $25 to $1.5 million. The Foundation is deeply grateful to our many donors for their generosity.
Campaign co-chairs Alison Cormack and Susie Thom are particularly pleased about the many Palo Alto families joining at the Leadership level. The Leadership level begins at $5,000 and includes recognition on the donor wall at each of the three library sites.
The “Launch our Libraries” campaign continues through December 2012 and gifts of all sizes are warmly welcomed.
