There are still a couple of weeks left to enjoy the toys on loan at the Mendon Public Library from the Rochester Toy Library.

The Rochester Toy Library sent a few large totes of toys to the Mendon Public Library to showcase the items available for loan from this amazing resource housed in the Lincoln Library a couple of months ago..

Through the end of July, Mendon Public Library patrons can check these toys out from the Mendon Public Library just like any other item.
