Menlo Park Library drops hold fee

The Menlo Park Library will no longer charge patrons for placing holds on items, as part of a move by the San Mateo County Peninsula Library System to improve customer service and circulation of library materials.

The 75-cent fee delivered an estimated $16,000 in annual revenue to the Menlo Park Library, but the decrease has been incorporated into the budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, according to the city.
