Public Library

The Mercer Public Library has much more than just books! Check with us for copying, faxing, scanning, computer use, reference service, programming for children and adults, and more. Visit the Policies page for more information.

The Library's copy machine and other office equipment is available to the public for a nominal fee.

B&W copy/printing: 10¢ per page, 20¢ double sided or 11" x 17"

Color copy/printing: 25¢ per page, 50¢ double sided or 11" x 17"
  Photo paper available for an additional fee.

Fax: $1 per page incoming and outgoing
  Note: to receive a fax at the library, send it to (715)476-2366 - the same as our phone number.

Laminating: $2 per sheet up to 8 1/2" x 11"

Scanning to a USB flash drive or to email: $2 per session

USB drives and optical discs: The library sells storage media as a courtesy to our public computer users. We currently have 2 GB USB drives available for $8, and CD-Roms available for 25¢ each. The library's computers will NOT save any data from public user sessions, so all files must be saved on external drives or discs.

The Mercer Library is part of the Merlin network of libraries, and can easily order any items in the Merlin Catalog to be delivered for our patrons. For items not found in the Merlin catalog, interlibrary loan services are available. Items can often be obtained through WisCat - the catalog of public and academic libraries in Wisconsin. As with any library service, there is no charge for interlibrary loan. Contact the library director for more information.

The Mercer Library will also provide reference services free of charge to any patron.
