Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library (FOL) raise funds to support library programs and services. Some examples of programs underwritten by the FOL are:

  • Summer reading programs
  • BookFlix
  • Author visits
  • Refreshments at our book talks
  • Children’s story time and programs
  • Teen programs
  • New furniture at the branches

These are just a few of the things made possible through the generous support of the Friends of Mentor Public Library. If you believe in the library and its services and would like to support it where needed, please consider becoming a Friend of the Mentor Public Library.
