Mendon Public Library

Something For Everyone


Library Events

We plan a variety of fun and educational library events for all ages. The majority of our events are free. Occasionally we request a nominal or reduced fee to defray the cost of event-specific materials and supplies, or to help off-set presenter costs. Current library events are listed on our homepage or on our events calendar.

 

Downloadable Audio and eBooks
MCLS has a great selection of adult, teen and children's downloadable audio books and e-books (see our Overdrive e-book collection).

 

Want to know how to download to your device? These resources are easy to read and understand:

 

New Books for Adults, Teens, and Children
Looking for something new to read? We showcase new fiction and non-fiction books for adults and teens on the shelves by our circulation desk. These displays also include staff picks and our gaming collection. New fiction and non-fiction for children are displayed on a wooden bookshelf by the entrance to Noah's Corner, which also houses a rotating display of interactive toys specifically for our young patrons, thanks to a generous grant from The Kade Project.

 

Local History Collection

The Mendon Public Library has a number of resources available for local history researchers. We maintain either microfiche copies or paper copies of the local newspaper, The Sentinel, beginning in August 1882. Thanks to the dedicated work of a volunteer, we are compiling an index of births, deaths, and marriages from the pages of The Sentinel. This index covers 1882 through 1895 and is available in the library. We will soon have digital copies of our extensive collection.

 

Thanks to a generous grant from The May K. Houck Foundation we have created a digital collection of HF-L Yearbooks. This collection is part of the New York Heritage Digital Collection.

 

You are also invited to review the Monroe County Library databases - Rochester Images and Rochester History, which contain several references to our local community. HeritageQuest is a genealogical database that includes the Federal Censuses, over 25,000 family and local histories, bank and military records, and genealogy from local history sources.

 

Book Clubs

Our beautiful facility is a perfect gathering place for book clubs. These guidelines will be helpful if you're thinking of forming a book club.

 

Meeting and Study Spaces

We offer two study rooms which may be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for two hours. Each room holds up to 5 people. Not-for-profit groups may reserve the meeting room by filling out a meeting room application and complying with the meeting room policies and rules of conduct. For further information, call the library at 624-6067.

 

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.

 

Wireless Printing

Thanks to a generous grant from the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation, the library has added the ability to print from your mobile devices to our HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476. The HP printer is capable of black and white and color print-outs, priced at 20 cents per page and $1.00 per page, respectively.
