Oct. 16-22 is National Friends of the Library Week. but it’s always a great time to thank and celebrate the Friends of the Mentor Public Library!

They contribute funds that help pay for some of our programs, equipment, staff training, and even our parade floats! Simply put, we wouldn’t be the same library without them.

In October, our Friends are partnering with Melt Bar & Grilled in Mentor for a special fundraiser. Any Thursday in October, bring in the Friends Flyer when you dine in or carry out from the Mentor Melt. Then 20 percent of the proceeds of your purchase will be donated to the Friends of Mentor Public Library. You can pick up the flyer at any of our branches or print one out here.

Also, if you’d like to join our wonderful Friends by volunteering, you can email friends@mentorpl.org.
