We love it when you support local businesses whenever you can. Remember that they employ your neighbors, and their tax dollars stay here in the community to support the library.But we know that everyone enjoys a little online shopping once in a while, so if you shop at Amazon.com here's how you can support the library at the same time. Start by visiting Amazon Smile at smile.amazon.com and tell Amazon that you want to support Friends of the Mercer Public Library. Then, every time you shop at Amazon Smile, a portion of the proceeds will benefit your library. It's that easy!
Mark your calendar: On Monday, October 27th at 7:00 p.m., Tracy Hames of the Wisconsin Wetlands Association will present a program on the wetlands of the Penokee Hills.
This science-based presentation will introduce you to the beautiful, diverse and abundant wetland resources of the Bad River Watershed. You will learn about the important role these wetlands play in helping maintain watershed health all the way downstream to the Kakagon/Bad River Sloughs estuary along Lake Superior. Information will also be given on what is known about a proposal to develop a large taconite mine in this area. A discussion period will follow the presentation.
All are welcome! For more information, call the library at 715-476-2366.
