Welcome! We appreciate your interest in The Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
For over sixty years we have been supporting the Library of Menlo Park, California, and the community it serves. A Proclamation from the City of Menlo Park has recognized our indelible positive impact for Menlo Park residents.
We thank our volunteers, members and donors, the Library staff and the City for their help in making our work possible.
We invite you to find out more about us on this site.
