Public Library

The Mercer Public Library uses the "Pharos" internet management system on our public access computers. Your login ID is your library card number (with no spaces) and your password is your birthdate, entered in the MM-DD-YYYY format including the hyphens.

Patrons over the age of 18 who do not hold a library card and who are just "passing through" the area may request a temporary card from library staff. 

Patrons under 18 are REQUIRED to have a parent/guardian's signature on the Mercer Library's Computer/Internet Usage Agreement form on file at the library. No one under 18 will be permitted to use a computer on their own card or on anyone else's unless the agreement form has been signed. There are no filters on library computers, and the Mercer Public Library takes no responsibility for the content found on the internet.

Our WiFi network is unrestricted, and is available to any wireless devices within range. Please use appropriate caution, as the library is not responsible for securing the data transmitted over our WiFi network. No password is required, and the WiFi network is normally available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week.

Printing is available from the library's computers for a nominal fee: 10¢ B&W, 20¢ double-sided B&W; 25¢ color. Photo paper may be available for an additional charge.
