Library expansion onto the area of MCC

Dear Council Members/Library Commissioners,

It recently came to my attention that the Menlo Park Library is looking to
expand. It is also with complete surprise that I learned that one of the
potential expansion sites is on the location where the current Menlo
Children Center and After School Program are located.

I am extremely disappointed that no one has reached out to us, parents, to
alert us to a potential displacement. We have been notified only recently
and the messages we get seem to be mixed.

Having the MCC is critical to our family and is part of the reason we chose
Menlo Park. We are a young family, both professionals, myself being a
graduate of Stanford GSB. We love Menlo Park but we would not be able to
remain here if it weren't for the MCC. And based on my discussion with
other parents, many are like us.

Investing in Child Care should be a city priority, It can help attract
young, professional families, many of which are excited to join such a
community and can contribute to the city. As a resident of Menlo Park, I
believe strongly that a lack of investment in chid care will hurt Menlo
Park in the near and long term.
