Menlo Park's main library closes

Main Menlo Park library shuts down for renovation

The Menlo Park public library on Alma Street closes on May 21 for renovation.

When it reopens on June 18, patrons will see a new circulation area and an easier checkout system via radio frequency identification tags, according to the staff.

The outside book drop will stay open to allow patrons to return items, and the Belle Haven branch, at 413 Ivy Drive, will extend its hours until the main library is back in business.

Doesn't a month long shutdown in the last weeks of the school year seem like a bad idea? Don't kids study there anymore?
