Join Our Team Of
Only a Few Hours a Week
Won’t you consider contributing a few hours a week to help keep our five Palo Alto libraries up-to-date and thriving? FOPAL’s monthly sales of donated books and media raise much-needed funds to purchase new books, furniture, technology, and special programs for Palo Alto public libraries. These sales happen through the efforts of many individuals just like you! Please join us.

Corporate groups or service organizations looking for one-time, or regularly scheduled work projects can help us as well.
