Help FOPAL Trim Administrative Costs and Contribute More $$ to Palo Alto's Libraries!

As a nonprofit organization, FOPAL operates on a slender budget to cover its administrative costs. Here are some much-needed items that would enable us to more efficiently and effectively raise more funds to benefit Palo Alto's five public libraries.

To fulfill our online orders, FOPAL has a constant need for shipping materials, specifically:

Air bags/pillows - YES

Brown paper - YES

Bubble Wrap (all sizes) - YES

Styrofoam blocks and peanuts - NO

Used Bubble Mailers - YES

Small Boxes (Amazon A1, A3, D1 especially; new or gently used) - YES

Larger Amazon Boxes - depends, we take them, we can always recycle.

Amazon single book mailers (cardboard that wraps around one book) - YES

Clear plastic bags - NO

Thin white styro/plastic - NO

Rolls of clear shipping tape = YES

We can also use large sturdy boxes for Amazon FBA shipments. They have to be undamaged and have thick walls though.

Our other needs include:

- Sturdy metal 2 or 3-shelf push carts for moving our heavy, book-filled bankers boxes!

- A Cash-Counting Machine!!

- Computers/laptops -- Intel-based Macs (desktop or laptop) or Pentium 4 or better laptops/notebooks.

- iPads or other tablets

- Gift cards to Costco, office supply companies, OSH, etc.

- Yellow 2B pencils, white erasers, yellow 3X3" post-its, Sharpies, Astrobright paper, pushpins

- White Signicade or other sturdy sandwich boards for sale day signs

- Programmer versed in Python, Perl or similar to write a script to interface with the Amazon API

Let us know if you'd like to donate any of the above items to FOPAL. All contributions are tax-deductible. Learn more about FOPAL at: www.fopal.org
