Arriallaga Library Offer-I respectfully say NO

To the Menlo Park Council

1-I am in my 18th year of living in Menlo Park. I love our city.

2-I use the library quite a lot.........not so much to borrow books but to
read journals and use the desk space for working in a peaceful location.

3-I have not been aware of a rush hour effect at any time.....I do not
remember ever seeing lines of people to ask questions or check out
books. I find there is always plenty of desk/table locations to choose from.

In other words, I can not see, from my perspective, any reason for a new
library and - as a tax payer- I would not vote for any bond which would
cause my/our tax money to go towards building or maintaining such a project
which I feel is not necessary.

4-I most probably have donated over 150 books, CD's, videos to the library
when I moved from my house to the townhouse;

Summary: my library visits show me that the current facility is quite
adequate for the city's needs

May I thank the Council for taking a measured approach to-what in theory
sounds like a great financial offer- but on reflection I think has several
additional costs.
