How to use the Almanac archives

 

Bound volumes of the Almanac from the 1970s to 2003 are available to the public in the Community Heritage Room of the Portola Valley Library whenever the library is open.

Write to HistoricResources@portolavalley.net or call Town Clerk Sharon Hanlon at 851-1700, ext. 210, to schedule an appointment to use reference catalogs for particular stories and photo negatives, and to view issues from the late 1960s. The Heritage Room is staffed on Thursdays between 3 and 5 p.m.

The Portola Valley Library at 765 Portola Road is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Go to AlmanacNews.com for an online archive of issues from 1998 to the present. Use the search box at the top of the page or click on the "Recent Editions" link in the column on the left.

The Menlo Park Historical Association has a bound Menlo Park-oriented Almanac collection published during the 1970s and 1980s.

The association's offices are in the basement of the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St. and are open from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays.
