Many of our local residents are surprised that Project Read, which raises funds through its own nonprofit board, Literacy Partners, is in fact a service of the Menlo Park Library and its staff. While our community's contributions are essential to keeping Project Read healthy, the reality is that more than half of our funding comes from city and state resources and the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
The library provides active leadership and oversight, and as many library patrons have probably noticed, hosts Project Read's services at the main and Belle Haven libraries. Project Read is "your tax dollars and contributions at work." Project Read programs are woven deeply into the fabric of our city for the benefit of all of our communities.
Thanks to all of our supporters, volunteers, learners, and the people of Menlo Park, along with the wisdom and support of our City Council and the leadership of our library.
We wish Susan Holmer all the best in exciting retirement adventures.
Project Read-Menlo Park
President, Literacy Partners
