Friends of the Palo Alto High School Library (Website, Handout)
Be a friend to the Paly Library. The 2020/21 school year was a year of growth for the Paly Library. We expanded our digital offerings and now offer subscriptions to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal to staff and students! The Library needs funds to continue the process of supporting our online resource collections, which include a wide range of ebooks, newspapers, magazines, databases, and audiobooks that are perfect for high school reading and research.

We are also in the process of updating and replacing the more than 300 print books we lost as a result of the COVID-19 school closures. We appreciate any support! For more information about our library services and resource collections please contact Teacher Librarian Sima Thomas ( and check out the library home page.
