We know something about stories. We have tens of thousands lining the shelves of our branches.

But now the library wants to know your story.

In anticipation of our 200th anniversary in 2019, we are collecting:

  • Historic photos of the library (any branch or event.)
  • People’s favorite memories involving Mentor Public Library.

If you have a photo or memory you wish to share, please contact us. You can either email Jason.lea@mentorpl.org or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 213.
