The children's library of Palo Alto is a tremendous resource on its own. When I visited, it was full of kids, strollers, parents, grandparents and caregivers. It's part of a complex that includes a small zoo and community space with girl and boy scouts meetings. All of this surrounds one of the area's elementary schools.
