Menlo Children’s Center and Library Expansion

Dear Council Members and Library Commissioners,

It recently came to my attention that the Menlo Park Library is looking to
expand. It is also with complete surprise that I learned that one of the
potential expansion sites is where the current Menlo Children's Center
(MCC) is located.

I am extremely disappointed that no one has reached out to us, parents, to
alert us of a potential displacement. *I would like to stress how
disruptive this would be for our children and for the working parents who
use this facility*. I very much oppose a one-sided decision by either
library commission or city council without reaching out to the people who
will be most adversely affected by such a move.

Menlo Children's Center is critical to our family for obvious and practical
reasons, as it provides quality and affordable childcare so that we are
able to go to work each day. It would be extremely inconvenient for
families to have to find alternative childcare options if MCC were to be
eliminated or closed for any duration of time.

I would like to understand ASAP any potential impact that the expansion of
the library might have on the Menlo Children’s Center. My hope is that this
question gets addressed in a public format very soon.
