LINK+ Service Temporarily Suspended During Move to the New Library
Contact : Rose Sebastian, Library Services Manager    (650) 329-2478

Palo Alto, CA –In preparation for the move to the new Mitchell Park Library, the LINK+ service will be suspended beginning on November 1, and is scheduled to resume after the opening date of the new facility where space was designed for this service.  During the move, community members can use other libraries with LINK+ services including Mountain View and Sunnyvale and will not be charged for library cards.

“We are all looking forward to moving into the new facility,” said City Library Director Monique le Conge Ziesenhenne.  “Once the new Mitchell Park Library opens, we will again offer LINK+ service.  The library is exploring the feasibility of expanding our subscription to include the borrowing of media, which is a popular request.”  Any changes to LINK+ services will be announced if and when they are available.

During the transitional period, library customers can obtain a library card at any public California library with proof of residency and a photo ID.  Palo Alto customers also use the online Purchase Suggestion Form located on the top bar of the catalog page at to suggest books to augment the City’s collection.
