Mendon Public Library

Welcome to the Mendon Public Library!


 

The library will be closed December 23-26 for the Christmas holiday and will reopen at 9:30 AM on December 27. It will be closed on January 1 for New Years and will reopen at 9:00 AM on January 2.

 

New Winter Hours Take Effect January 2
What will the new winter hours be?
Monday-Thursday: 9:00 AM-8:30 PM
Friday: 9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Saturday: 10:00 AM-4:00 PM
Why the new hours?
We hope these new winter hours will accommodate more patrons without adding to our bottom line expenditures and will be a more efficient use of staffing and building utilities. However, we will maintain our usual summer hours:
Monday-Thursday: 9:30 AM-9:00 PM
Friday: 9:30 AM-5:00 PM
Closed Saturdays
Are these new hours permanent?
These new winter hours will apply for a test period that runs from January 2 to March 31, at which point the MPL Board of Trustees will evaluate the new hours' effectiveness based upon patron feedback and make a decision as to making these winter hours permanent or not.
Once the new winter hours take effect, let the staff know how the new hours work for you!

Movie Synopsis: "Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently - and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same."

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!
