Menlo Park Today, 1968

Back to the future.😃📚 We found this groovy magazine article about Menlo Park's "new" library in 1968! Complete with photos of the vinyl record listening station, space-age microfilm reader, and the card catalog-- where one can "research any subject from aardvark to zythum." Then, as now, Menlo Park Library is the place where past, present and future intersect.
