The Friends of the Library will be holding its Splendid Spring Used Book Sale at Library this year. It will be held in the Conference Room at the library itself starting on Tuesday, April 7th. We have a very wide selection this year including a very large non-fiction section. This is a great chance to expand your own collection and to support your library so we can continue to provide wonderful programming for our community.
The library is always accepting donations of used books, but we do request no textbooks, encyclopedias, or Reader’s Digest materials. If you would like to help at the book sale, stop by the library and sign up today!
Thank you for a wonderful and successful author visit!
The Beverly Lewis Author Visit was a roaring success! We had over 120 people come to meet the author, and buy her new book, Love Letters. The Mercer Area Library sold well over 100 copies, making it a big achievement for us too. Ms. Lewis clearly enjoyed meeting her many Mercer fans. She also stayed and signed each and every book offered to her, even though the line was so very long. We thank her and her staff for being so professional and cheerful during their visit. We hope all of our patrons enjoyed the author visit as well, even those who were in the standing-room only section! Thanks for coming by and enjoying the library programs, and we hope to see you again soon!
