To Whom It May Concern,

I write to you today with all due respect in order to throw my support behind efforts to save Feldman's Books. Please enter my comments into the official meeting record.
Whilst I cannot be there in person due to my business schedule, I wanted to bring your attention to the incredibly important role Feldmans plays in the Menlo Park community and beyond.

My love of books is what brought me to find Feldman's several years ago. I found a quiet, classy, peaceful oasis from the day-to-day noise and distractions. There are very, very few bookstores like Feldmans. I work extensively across our country and hardly find any used bookstores like theirs in my travels. Their ability to maintain such a diverse collection for book lovers to pour over is remarkable. The fact that they are in one of the few remaining historical buildings in the Silicon Valley area is incredible also. That fact alone makes it a treasure to keep, not destroy.

Please work collaboratively with the Feldman family to find a solution that will keep this valuable asset in the Menlo Park community. Don't give in to creating more noise on a very busy street. Look beyond modernization and gentrification and embrace history and an oasis from the noise. Your constituents will thank you for it.

Warm regards,

Peter Shearstone
