Mendon Public Library

Welcome to the Mendon Public Library!


 

 

Library Construction Information

     Thanks to the efforts of the Heart of Our Town Capital Campaign Committee, the Mendon Public Library Board of Trustees, the Friends of the Mendon Public Library, and the Town of Mendon, the Mendon Public Library will soon be able to offer improved, more efficient, child-friendly library services.

     Grant monies and donations to the library will fund the upgrade of the children's area of the library. These upgrades will allow us to offer a few additional efficiencies, including a more open children’s space that will enhance our library so we can provide better services for our entire community.

     The Mendon Public Library provides services to approximately 1,700 children each year and the library focuses on providing many opportunities for early literacy. Using current research and community input, the library proposed changes to the existing children’s space that would give children and their caregivers the best possible place to gather, discuss, learn, and enjoy. According to experts, the best way to engage early learners is through literacy-rich and play-based pavilions that allow children to explore and navigate the world of reading. Libraries are no longer quiet “shushing” places, but, vibrant, hands-on, exploration spaces that provide a range of early learning opportunities. As such, the current children’s area will undergo a transformation in the coming weeks to better design the space to offer a cohesive, bright, safe, and engaging area for our young library users.

     We anticipate that the Mendon Public Library will be open during the renovation and most of the collection will be available for circulation thanks to the teamwork and planning of the Mendon Public Library Board of Trustees, Town of Mendon officials, library staff, and construction crews.

     For more information, please contact the library at 585-624-6067 or www.mendonlibary.org.

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 inter-library loans!
