Downtown Library Closes For One Day On May 27, 2008
Contact : Rose Sebastian, Supervising Librarian    650-329-2478

Palo Alto, CA -- Palo Alto’s Downtown branch will be closed on Tuesday, May 27, in order to prepare for the installation of a new circulation desk. The Main, Mitchell Park, Children’s and College Terrace branches will be open and available for use on that day. Regular service will resume at the Downtown branch on Wednesday, May 28.

The installation of the new compact desk will be completed over two weeks. The purchase of the new desk was made possible through a generous grant from the Friends of the Palo Alto City Library. The smaller desk will allow more public space for display shelving of DVDs and new books.

For additional information about the Library, including branch locations and hours, see the Library web site at For more information about the closure of the Downtown branch, contact Rose Sebastian at 650-329-2478 or
