Where do you want Mentor Library to pop up next?

Kids show off their new books during a Pop-Up Library at Hopkins Elementary last week.
We celebrated National Library Week—which, by the way, was last week—by bringing out our Pop-Up Library.

If you haven't seen our Pop-Up Library yet, it's a small trailer that we fill with donated books and bring them to wherever you are.

Just last week we gave away more than 800 books at Mentor High School, Eleanor Garfield Park, Mentor Senior Center, Altercare, James A. Garfield National Historic Site, Mentor-on-the-Lake City Hall, Deepwood's Vocational Guidance Center, and Hopkins Elementary.

The books are free to keep forever. You don’t need a library card or to return them to one of our branches. (If you like, you can drop the book off in one of our Little Free Libraries when you’re finished.)

And we're not done. You'll be seeing our Pop-Up Library all around Mentor and Mentor-on-the-Lake this spring and summer.

If you want us to bring our Pop-Up Library to your school, church or workplace, email our community outreach coordinator at
