Because the Palo Alto School District will begin
remodeling the Terman site in September, in preparation for a middle school in Fall
2003, there will be only five more monthly sales in our present book sale space. We
hope to find another suitable site so that we can continue our tradition
of holding the sales and using the proceeds to help the Palo Alto
The size of the book sale space determines how many
books we can stock and thus the revenue from our monthly sales.
Because of increases in space, donations, and volunteers over the last
years, the sales have steadily raised more each year, as this graph shows:
We presently have about 2/3 of a mile of bookshelves at
Terman, holding over 40,000 volumes. The 1,900 square foot portable at the Cubberley
Community Center we have been offered is much smaller than the 5,000 square
feet we use at Terman. If you know of other
space, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call our book room at (650) 493-7432.
