Expand your library at Friends of the Palo Alto Library sales!

We never stop making finds at the Friends of the Palo Alto Library sales, and we volunteer  when we can. You won't find just books, but also art and collectibles, along with puzzles and games, greeting cards, music and  software.

Selection events at FabMo 

​Next one is Mar 8 - 10 in a newer larger space

FabMo provides unique, high-end materials to artists, teachers, and others for their creative reuse.  These exquisite textiles, wallpapers, tiles, leathers, trims, etc. are from the design world, and are usually not available to you at all except through a designer.  FabMo makes them available on a donation basis, diverting about 70 tons/year of them from their otherwise destination - the landfill!  

We will tap into inner confidence, practice effective ways to say “no” and “stop”, and come up with plans for dealing with unwanted situations… and it will be FUN!
Suitable for kids ages 5 and up accompanied by an adult. 
Space is limited; please RSVP to Melissa at mmwyman@gmail.com 
Featuring artwork by students in the ROAR Workshop After School Program (K-3rd graders from Ohlone Elementary School) and a project that invites public participation in conjunction with TinkerLab, Public Paints explores the theme of empowerment through collective expression and collaboration. People of all ages are invited both to view finished work and to participate in a collaborative artistic process through the creation of a large painting project during the course of the weekend.  
The ROAR Workshop After School Program (founder Melissa Wyman and CASP Artist) combines super fun, age appropriate self-awareness and self-confidence building with art exploration. Participants practice their animal-ninja skills while exploring the link between joyful curiosity and observational skills (being aware of our surroundings) and art making, mindfulness and creativity. www.roarworkshop.com
TinkerLab (founder Rachelle Doorley and CASP Artist) inspires families and educators to foster a love for making through hands-on art and tinkering projects. We deliver inspiration through our free blog content, best-selling book, TinkerLab: A Hands-on Guide for Little Inventors, online classes, Art Start challenge, and in-person workshops. www.tinkerlab.com
