Many thanks to all of you who made 2016 another excellent year at the Mercer Public Library!
It's tax season again! As of January 30, 2017, we have copies of the state and federal basic forms: Wisconsin Form 1, 1A, WI-Z, rent certificate and Homestead forms and instruction books; and federal 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms and instruction books.
We can also assist you in finding the form you need online. Please don't hesitate to stop by and ask. The cost to print most forms and instructions is 10 cents per page.
Take the survey and share your thoughts
The newly-formed Mercer Area Community Planning (MACP) committee is a group of individuals and organizations working together to identify the strengths of our community. We want to start a conversation on how our organizations can work together to build on those strengths.
We need input from Mercer-area residents, property owners, and visitors to help us identify where we should focus our community planning. Please take the Mercer Area Community Planning Survey to give us your thoughts.
Complete the survey online at bit.ly/mercersurvey.
Paper copies of the survey are available at the Library, Mercer School, the Mercer Town Hall, the Mercer Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Mercer Senior Center.
If you have any questions about the survey or about the Mercer Area Community Planning (MACP) committee, call library director Teresa Schmidt at 715-476-2366.
The Mercer Library is beginning a new event series called “Community Chats,” where we invite a representative from one of our local service agencies to talk about what they do for the community. This is your chance to visit with town and county officials, ask questions, and learn more about the many services available to our residents.
Chats will be held on Fridays at 9:30 a.m. We’ll provide the coffee and snacks!
