During the Summer of 2010, MPL introduced Book News, an online readers' advisory service, to patrons. Clicking the Book News icon on the Library's website provides patrons with some of the latest fiction and nonfiction books just published. There are different email book lists to which patrons may subscribe (again, at no cost) using their email addresses.

The Library became Skype-enabled during 2010. Patrons may use, free-of-charge, computers in the MPL Study Rooms to access Skype, which allows users to make free video calls to anyone around the world (provided both users have computers, Internet access, and the Skype software).
