Talking Circles: The Art of Listening

Talking Circles: The Art of Listening

Monday, May 15

6:30-8:30 PM

*For Teens & Adults*

While technology continues to increase our capacity to communicate faster, at greater distances, and in exhaustive detail, it seems that technology may also be undermining our ability to communicate in respectful and meaningful ways. Talking circles are an ancient and very low-tech way for communities to share information and make decisions. Talking circles invite us to enjoy our shared time and to come together for respectful and meaningful conversations. Call 624-6067 to register.

 


 

Afternoon at the Movies:

Please Don't Eat the Daisies

Wednesday, May 17

2:00-4:00 PM

*For Adults*

Join us for a relaxing afternoon at the library, where we will have a showing of "Please Don't Eat the Daisies", starring David Niven and Doris Day. No registration necessary.

 

"Lawrence Mackay (David Niven), a professor at Columbia University, lives happily with his wife, Kate (Doris Day), and their three children. But when he leaves his career in education to become a theater critic, his newfound celebrity causes problems with both his friends and family. A scathing review upsets a close friend, and Kate becomes jealous when his work keeps him out late feting with Broadway stars, including the particularly flirtatious Deborah Vaughn (Janis Paige)."

Don't live in Monroe County?

Don't have a library card?

That's okay!

You don't have to be a Monroe County resident or have a library card to use our free high-speed WiFi, utilize the copier, print things, reserve a study room, or just hang out at the library to read or work. ANYONE can use the Mendon Public Library! If you live outside of Monroe County but still want to get a library card, we offer a courtesy out-of-county library card that enables you to use any of Mendon's services and check out any of our materials. We also offer Monroe County cards at $25 a year that give you full access to all Monroe libraries, Overdrive (where you can check out e-materials), and the ability to place interlibrary loans!

 

Free High-Speed Wifi

Free High-Speed WiFi

High-speed wireless internet access is available to patrons who bring in their laptops or mobile devices. Our WiFi speed consistently clocks in at 10+ Mbps for downloads and 10+ Mbps for uploads, making it a breeze to work, study, stream content, and download files at the library. Combine this with our wireless printing, and you are set to go!
