Council keeps branch libraries

 

A proposal from Palo Alto Library Director Paula Simpson to close the city's two smallest libraries, in the College Terrace and Downtown neighborhoods, was unanimously rejected by the Palo Alto City Council Monday night.

The council also voted in favor of the eventual construction of a new full-service library.

Forty residents spoke to the council on the subject -- the vast majority asked them not to close the branches.

However, not all of Simpson’s ideas were dropped. The council voted in favor of the eventual construction of a new full-service library.

— Bill D'Agostino
