The Friends of the Menlo Park Library are holding a used book sale on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to winnow overstocked titles, with prices starting at $1. No children's books will be available. The sale takes place at the main branch of the library at 800 Alma St.

If you miss the sale, the Friends Bookstore located inside the library is restocked daily with all types of books; proceeds benefit the Menlo Park and Belle Haven libraries.

Arts grants

Applications are now open for the Menlo Park Grant for the Arts. Five community groups will be awarded $500 to $1,000 each to subsidize the rental cost of the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, offering an opportunity to hold a performance in a professional-grade theater, according to the city.

Applications will be accepted until March 12. Grants expire one year after they are awarded.
