📰 👀 Facebook offers to build a new library and community center in Belle Haven. The tech giant has announced plans to "fully fund" a "state-of-the-art," "multi-generational" community facility in Menlo Park. The proposed new facility would be located where the aging and outdated Onetta Harris Community Center is now.

In a statement, Facebook said, "We believe this effort will strengthen the social fabric of our neighborhood for decades to come."

Facebook first announced their offer at a meeting of the Belle Haven Neighborhood Association on October 2. Facebook representatives are expected to announce their offer to the City Council during the regularly scheduled City Council meeting on October 15.
