Spring Book Sale Dates & Donations

The time is approaching! If you have books, DVDs, CDs, or games that you'd like to donate to the Friends' Spring Book Sale, we would welcome your contributions beginning March 1. Items that are in good, to excellent, condition may be placed in the red-doored vestibule at 15 Monroe Street. Please do not leave donations outside; the red door will be unlocked during closed hours so that your items will be protected from the elements. To find out what we can and cannot accept, click here. Thank you for supporting the Mendon Library!

Tax Season

Tax Season

This is a time of year most of us dread, especially now that governments are migrating to digital-only tax filing. The Mendon library is only able to provide what the federal and state governments issue print copies of. If you need to take the plunge into digital filing, but don't know what to do or where to start, consider these free tax resources offered via the Monroe County Library System.

 

Additionally, take advantage of the Facilitated Self-Assistance (FSA) program provided at the Central Library of Rochester. This free program offers laptops and the aide of FSA volunteers throughout the tax season. To view the FSA schedule and to find out more information, click here. You may also call the Central Library Business Division at (585) 428-8130 with questions or to set up an appointment. A list of items you will need to bring to your appointment may be found here.

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!
