M-A students are lucky to attend a high school surrounded by amazing local libraries with wonderful resources and events for teens. Here’s a run-down of M-A’s nearby libraries, and their  upcoming events worth checking out:

Menlo Park Library: The Menlo Park Library is just a quick walk from M-A. It serves the entire M-A community and offers unique, teen-specific events.

  • Fridays, 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.: Teen Film Fridays in April and May.
  • Monday, May 13, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.: Mark your calendars for a Meditative Banig Drawing Workshop in honor of Mental Health Month and Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. You will practice recreating classic Filipino line patterns.
  • Wednesday, May 15, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.: Asian American Storytopia in recognition of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Storytellers will perform “Asian folktales and poignant personal tales.”

Atherton Library: If you haven’t checked out the Atherton Library, it’s a vibrant, contemporary workplace, typically buzzing with M-A students. Mademoiselle Colette, its built-in cafe, serves as a convenient means for study break snacks. 

East Palo Alto Library: The East Palo Alto Library is as dynamic as the multicultural community it serves. Its quiet spaces and array of seating make it a great place to study after school and on the weekends. It also has a steady calendar of events for teens. 

  • Weekdays, 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.: Power Up Afternoons focused on Arts & Crafts activities for teens.
