Amerks Reading Power Play Program

Now through January 31

*For Children*

The Rochester Americans and the Monroe County Library System are once again partnering to provide the Reading Power Play Program. The 2018-19 season marks the 14th year of the program and is presented exclusively by Wendy’s. The Reading Power Play allows fans to meet players and The Moose, while also learning about hockey and the importance of reading. The program rewards children for reading and selects two grand-prize winners that will win suite tickets and the chance to drop the ceremonial first puck prior to Amerk's home game on Sunday, Feb. 17. Using the hat trick as an educational incentive, youth participants fill out a form for every three books they read, which then qualifies them for an entry into the grand prize drawing.

Afternoon at the Movies:

The Bishop's Wife

Wednesday, December 19

2:00-4:00 PM

*For Everyone*

Dejected by his efforts to raise money to build a cathedral, Bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven) beseeches heaven for guidance and is visited immediately by Dudley (Cary Grant), who claims to be an angel. Henry is skeptical, then annoyed, when Dudley ingratiates himself into the household as his assistant--and worse, wins the attentions of Henry's long-suffering and kindly wife (Loretta Young). When Dudley continues to intervene in Henry's struggles, the bishop decides to challenge heaven.

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.

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

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!
