Afternoon at the Movies: Five Feet Apart

Wednesday, November 20

2:00-4:00 PM

*For Ages 13+*

Seventeen-year-old Stella spends most of her time in the hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries, and self-control--all of which get put to the test when she meets Will, an impossibly charming teen who has the same illness. There's an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Rated PG-13.

Thank You Benson Enterprises of Victor

& The Friends of Mendon Public Library

*For Everyone*

A hearty thank you goes out to the folks at Benson Enterprises in Victor for creating such a lovely entrance to the library recently. The Friends of the Mendon Public Library organized and funded the beautification project, which included the proper setting of the monogrammed bricks and the addition of colorful plantings. Stop by to see the completed project. Before and after pictures are also posted on our Facebook page.

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 In the past, your support allowed us to update outdated shelving and offer additional programs. This year, the Friends plan to update the remainder of the outdated shelving units and bring new seating to our technology and children's areas.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

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!
