About Us

Friends of the Palo Alto Library (FOPAL) is a member-supported non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Palo Alto Public Library and its users through volunteerism, book sales, and advocacy. Our volunteers conduct monthly and online sales of books and other media donated by the community. Net proceeds from our sales are used for the purchase of books, media, online resources, equipment, and special programs for Palo Alto’s five public libraries.
