Mendon Public Library

Great Reasons to Give


 

The Mendon Public Library strengthens our community by:

 

  • Developing young people’s minds, and helping adults and seniors pursue their interests and dreams In 2015, the library held 116 early literacy programs, helping to provide a foundation for later reading skills. While taking a look at the HFL middle school high honor roll, we discovered that 143 out of 161 students have a library card. This means that 89% of students on high honor roll have library cards! Coincidence? Overall, we issued or updated 1,684 library cards in 2015, and checked out more than 84,851 items from our library.

 

  • Serving as a window to the Internet and other current technologyIn 2015, Mendon Public Library patrons started more than 5,055 internet sessions on library computers, opened additional WiFi sessions using their own laptops, and checked out 8,840 e-materials. The library offers 10 Kindle Fire Ereaders for check-out, as well as a video game library for teens.

 

  • Connecting the public to our democracy and our heritageAt the Mendon Public Library, patrons can access government websites and paper tax forms. In addition, the library regularly offers valuable community programming for free, such as: “Researching Your Family History”; discussion groups; caregiver support groups in association with the Alzheimer’s Association; local history seminars; along with many others.

 

  • Enhancing the economyIn 2015, Mendon Public Library had 114 patrons take personalized technology training classes. A 2009 Wisconsin study found that the return on every state tax dollar invested in its public library system- including new construction, operating costs, and dollars spent in the community by visiting library patrons – was $4.06.

 

  • Facilitating regional idea exchange through membership in the Monroe County Library SystemThe Mendon Public Library offers patrons access to not only its 46,000 item collection, but also to the 3 million items available through membership in the Monroe County Library System.
