Our annual Friends of the Library Fall Celebration will be on Saturday, September 30th from 5:00 to 8:30pm. Join us for food, music, wine, and fun!
This popular event includes a full Italian dinner with three entrees, wine and beer, live music with Steve Swalve, our traditional Book Basket raffles, silent auctions, and a live auction with our entertaining auctioneer, Scott Hueckman of Hueckman Auction and Sales.
From September through May the Mercer Library book club meets once a month, generally on the second Tuesday of the month at 1:00pm, for an informal discussion of each month's title. There are no requirements, and this is a relaxed and friendly group. New members are always welcome! To borrow a copy of the current title from the library, give us a call at (715)476-2366 or visit our online catalog at http://merlin.nwls.lib.wi.us.
