Mendon Public Library

Welcome to the Mendon Public Library!


 

Library services or building sections may be limited on Wednesday, October 25, from 4-9 while we have our carpets cleaned. Thank you for your understanding!

 

 

Fall Book Sale Dates & Donations

Join us for another fall book sale presented by The Friends of the Mendon Public Library! Thank you to the tireless volunteers who organize these sales and to community members like you who contribute books, DVDs, CDs, and games. This is a great chance to get some early Christmas shopping done, mark these dates on your calendar!

 

We love receiving donations for our book sales! Due to limited space, we sometimes end up with more items than we have room for. As you take advantage of this opportunity to create some more space in your home by generously donating to our book sale, please keep these MPL donation guidelines in mind. If you are interested in volunteering to work the book sale, a schedule and sign-up can be viewed here. Thank you so much for making these book sales possible!

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!
