Storytelling Festival at the Library


Storytelling Festival 2017
Throughout the month of November, the Menlo Park Library will celebrate the art of storytelling—and story listening—by showcasing a series of professional tellers.  Every Monday night we will present a performance by a different storyteller, all new to our library.  Some of our returning favorites will be featured on other days of the week. Drop in for one event, or join us for the entire series!

Film Discussion Meetup


Join us the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30 - 7:45 p.m. to informally discuss the movie playing at the Guild Movie Theater the weekend prior. We see the movie on our own and then meet in the library's downstairs meeting room to discuss it together in an informal and friendly environment. Snacks provided. Please contact the organizer with any questions and for more information.

Knitting Meetup


Meet the 4th Wednesday of every month from 7-9 to crochet, knit, sew, & laugh!  All skill levels welcome.

Literature Book Club


Meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 7:15-8:30. Our club will discuss a wide range of contemporary literary works: novels, short stories, essays, and poetry.  Our mission is to closely read a selection of literary works and discuss them in a spirit of curiosity and respect.
