Mendon Public Library

Welcome to the Mendon Public Library!


 

 

Stop by the Library and check out our beautiful new shelving!

 

Our new shelving was donated by The Friends of the Mendon Public Library and includes new shelving for the Adult Fiction and Juvenile Fiction collections (center aisle shelving) as well as new magazine racks!

 

 

These new shelves replaced used shelving that was acquired by the Mendon Public Library back in 2010. That used shelving served our community and a few others (prior to Mendon’s acquisition) well past its shelf life.

 

We would also like to extend a special thank-you to the HFL High School Robotics Group (which includes students from HFL and Rush Henrietta) who volunteered to deconstruct and remove the shelving as a community service project.

Author Talk: Peter Lovenheim

Wednesday, October 17

7:00-8:00 PM

*For Everyone*

Peter Lovenheim will be discussing his latest book, The Attachment Effect. It is a revealing look at how and why we relate to others—and how we can improve our closest connections. Why is this concept of attachment, widely accepted for decades, suddenly in the news? Because people are discovering how powerfully it sheds light on the mystery of how we relate to each other and why these patterns tend to repeat themselves over the course of our lives. Fascinated by the subject, award-winning journalist and author Peter Lovenheim embarked on a journey to explore the science of attachment and how it underpins our complicated connections to each other. Through a compelling narrative that combines personal stories with scientific research, along with personal insights into his own intimate relationships, Lovenheim brings the attachment process to life and reveals how our earliest bond shapes our entire lives. Call 624-6067 to register.

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.
