The Friends of the Library will host their summer book sale on July 31, August 2, and August 3 during normal library hours. Stop by for bargains on books for the whole family! Hardcover books are $1, paperbacks are 50 cents or 3/$1, and DVDs and audiobooks are $1. Friday is bag sale day -- all the books you can fit in your bag for $2!
We are still accepting donations for the sale. We love good condition fiction, nonfiction, and children's books; DVDs; books on CD; puzzles; and board games. Sorry, we do not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, Readers Digest Condensed Books, or anything moldy or excessively dusty. Bring your donations in during normal library hours (M-Th 9-7, Fri 9-5, Sat 9-12). Thank you!
Librarian Teresa Schmidt will be on hand to answer your technology questions on most Tuesdays from 2 to 4 pm. Stumped by Windows 8? Wondering what to do about Windows 10? Can't figure out how to download free library books to your iPad? Need help navigating your smartphone? Bring in your gadgets and your questions and we'll try to find the answers together.

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.
Upcoming Book Club titles:
January 9 at 1:00pm - "Pick an Era" cookbook discussion - Select an era from the past and find a cookbook with recipes from that era that you can discuss. If you like, prepare a recipe from the book to share with the group. All are welcome, and cooking is optional! If you need help finding a cookbook, stop by the library.
