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 deductible 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.
