Mendon Public Library

Welcome to the Mendon Public Library!


 

Sweet as Pie!

Mendon Public Library's

2018 Annual Appeal

Now through December 31

*For Everyone*

The Mendon Public Library is a lovely place where you can find all kinds of sweet things: the latest books, a book on cd for an upcoming car trip, a new movie to entertain the kids, tech assistance for the new iPad, WiFi access to online information, conference space for your book club, and so much more.

 

The Trustees of the Mendon Public Library, library staff, and Friends all work together to provide a “Sweet as Pie” resource for everyone in our community. The taxes and library fees that fund our operations are handled with great care and sound fiscal practices. Our budget remains tight, and everyone works hard to manage expenses responsibly.

 

If you think the Mendon Public Library is “Sweet as Pie,” please consider a gift to support the Friends.

 

Information on how to make a tax deductable donation can be found on the "Support the Library" link above. The Friends are cooking up some savory improvements and appreciate any support you may be able to provide.

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 inter-library 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!

     

Got talent you would

be willing to share?
