  Making It To The Finish Line
The Finish Line
If every household in our community gives just $26, we will reach our goal!
If you give $100 or more, you qualify for a complimentary one-year subscription to The Sentinel. Find out more.
After five years of volunteer efforts and tremendous community support, the Heart of Our Town Capital Campaign has raised 80% in private funds necessary to complete the funding of this project.
The Heart of Our Town Capital Campaign will be concluding this fall, but the Friends of the Mendon Public Library will continue to offer book sales, special events, and programs to support library enhancements.
