Your gift to the Friends of the Mendon Public Library, a 501c3 organization, allows the Friends to bolster the library's offerings and support improvements that the annual budget just doesn't allow. In the past, your support allowed us to update outdated shelving and offer additional programs. This year, the Friends plan to update the remainder of the outdated shelving units and bring new seating to our technology and children's areas. 


Sincerely,
     The Friends of the Mendon Public Library

Pardon Our Mess

Please pardon our mess while we finish upgrading our shelving throughout the library. Several items have been temporarily relocated to various parts of the library, so if you can't locate something, be sure to ask a clerk for assistance. Thank you for your patience as we work to make the library a better space for everyone. We hope to have everything back in order by January 1, 2020.

A hearty thank you goes out to the folks at Benson Enterprises in Victor for creating such a lovely entrance to the library recently.

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!
