The Menlo Park Library will be closed to the public for four weeks from Monday May 21 through Sunday June 17, 2012. The library will be remodeling its Circulation area as it updates its data storage and retrieval system by implementing radio frequency identification (RFID). In addition to this update in technology, the carpeting throughout the Library will be replaced.
The Library is part of the Peninsula Library System, a consortium of libraries up and down the Peninsula that share materials thereby expanding each individual library’s collection. Member libraries of Peninsula Library System are converting to RFID technology because it boosts productivity, improves collection management and enhances customer service. As a result of these changes, patrons will be able to check out materials more quickly and staff can be focused on enhanced customer service.
