Library staffing etc

Dear Council members,

I fully support the city manager and library services director request for
 service level enhancements of 20.5 additional open hours per week at the Belle Haven Branch


 operations of a planned new after-school homework tutoring center four days per week at the

Belle Haven branch library

Completing the second phase of the City Council’s planned two-year transition away from overreliance on

temporary library staff and toward a more balanced mix of permanent and temporary staff, as was recommended by a comprehensive library department administrative and operational review in 2015 and implemented by City Council in 2018 with the intent to implement the second phase in 2019.

If the city desires to grow the library programming to serve more residents and provide greater enrichment opportunities, there is a need to replace temporary personnel with regular personnel. And more services are needed at Belle Have branch while we move ahead with plans for a NEW BRANCH!!!!!

Stop getting in to the weeds and be proactive. Menlo Park is far behind on state metrics for library services and staffing. Don’t you want to be PROUD of our city?

Betsy Halaby
MPLF vice president
