NO NEW LIBRARY

Dear city council,

Please vote NO on a new library building in Burgess Park.

When I look for a particular book in the library catalog, 9 times out of 10, Menlo Park doesn’t have a copy; a copy has to be sent in from another city. Why is Menlo Park’s collection so lacking? Why should we spend $30 million putting pearls on swine?

I also oppose any plan that would require cutting down mature oak trees. With our changing climate we need MORE trees, not fewer.

I also oppose building housing within Burgess Park on the site of the current library. The mature trees and open space in the park are community assets. The need for more housing in the area notwithstanding, Burgess Park is not an appropriate setting for residential buildings.

Instead of funneling money into this hair-brained scheme for a new library building in Burgess Park, insist on better collection development and maintenance in the current library. The building itself doesn’t natter; it’s what’s inside that counts.

Vote NO on a new library building.
