About us

Menlo Park Library Foundation is a proud sponsor of our community libraries. From the Belle Haven Branch to the Main Library, our mission is to support and enhance Menlo Park's public library facilities, fundraising, and community network.

Building community

Your support helps us keep Menlo Park moving forward. Our city is the best in the Bay Area, and it continues to grow and evolve for a new century. Like so many other communities across the nation, our public library is a cornerstone of our community that will play a key role in our city's future health and success.

The need for 21st century community learning spaces for children, families, teens, adults and seniors to come together and share ideas and inspiration is self-evident. We are committed to helping Menlo Park keep apace for the benefit of generations to come.

Who we are

Menlo Park Library Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2005. We seek and secure grants; leverage private partnerships; and accept donations to support library system improvements in Menlo Park for the benefit of the entire community. 

We proudly support Menlo Park's public libraries. We speak out in the community about the value of the public library, and we advocate for positive library improvements including the current efforts to build new 21st century libraries in Belle Haven and the civic center campus.

We are a grassroots, all-volunteer nonprofit organization. 100% of the funds we raise are used to:

  • Enrich children's lives through innovative services and projects
  • Provide capital funding for Library equipment and technology
  • Raise awareness about the Library's positive impact to the community
  • Support projects that celebrate Menlo Park's identity as a hub of learning and innovation.
