Friends of the Library

Friends of the Menlo Park Library is a volunteer organization of local residents dedicated to enhancing the Menlo Park Public Library, its resources, and the many services it provides to the community. Activities include sponsorship of events and efforts to promote literacy, as well as raising funds.

Friends of the Menlo Park Library is a member of the Kepler's Community Partners Program. Whenever anyone mentions our name while shopping at Kepler's, they record the transaction and quarterly donate back 5% to us.

Activities to promote literacy include the annual "Kepler's Day", where
Friends' volunteers support local schools in a drive to increase the number of books read by students.

Fundraising activities include:
  • Book Sale Events
  • Sales of donated materials in the Bookstore, a nook within the library near the entrance, and online
