About an hour south of San Francisco near Palo Alto and Stanford University is the upscale town of Menlo Park.

Menlo Park is home to the much beloved Kepler’s Books.  How beloved?  Well, the owners once tried to close Kepler’s Books, only to find that local residents weren’t happy with that decision and worked together to get it to reopen.

A great resource if you’re in Palo Alto or Menlo Park.
