Library system improvements

The City of Menlo Park's library system consists of the main library and the Belle Haven branch. The City is planning for new library facilities at both its main and branch locations. The planning process began with input received during the Library’s Departmental review in 2015, continued with its Strategic Plan in 2016, and moved forward in 2017 with the Space Needs Assessment for the main library and the Belle Haven Neighborhood Library Needs Assessment.
