This holiday season the library would like to help get the word out about some of the many services and activities we have in our community. We’re inviting local organizations to decorate a wreath that we will hang inside the library this December. We’ll include information on your group next to your wreath to help the community know who you are, what you do, and how they might get involved. Read on for more details!
Thanks to funding from the Friends of the Mercer Public Library, a new 6.12kW solar energy system went online at the Mercer Public Library in October, 2017. As of May 21, 2018, the system has generated 3.35 MWh of power!
Check out our solar monitoring panel to see how much energy we're generating right now, or look at our statistics by the day, month, or year.
You can also view the data from our weather station to find out how our local weather affects the amount of power we generate from our photovoltaic system.
