Honorable Mayor and Council Members,

You may have to see it to believe it. The Library is currently displaying over 150 years worth of information about the City of Menlo Park's early beginnings in the 1850's through the present, 2014. An approx. 12' long display located at the entrance to the Library contains Maps, Flags, Stamps, Photos, Newspaper Clippings, Books, Proclamations and much, much more. In addition, the Library has an additional area with various items high lighting the country of Ireland - Menlo Park's roots, that all began with two Irishman, Dennis Oliver and Daniel McGlynn purchased approx. 1,700 acres of land near Ravenswood Avenue and El Camino Real, in the early 1850's. When the railroad was first built in the early 1860's, they named the station Menlo Park and ever since the rest is history. On October 17, 2013, a Friendship Agreement was signed by and between Menlo Park's Mayor Peter Ohtaki and Galway, Ireland's Mayor Padraig Conneely. The Library display helps to high light this bond between two world class cities. A h
and in friendship was established that may result in many mutual benefits to come, such as mutual ties educationally, technologically, socially, culturally and perhaps in sports and other areas. Much is planned in the days ahead. Thank you for your interest and support in helping to bridge friendships and in some small way, contribute to world peace.
