The Friends of the Mercer Public Library Fall Celebration is a much-anticipated annual event in Mercer. The 2018 Celebration will be held on Saturday, September 22nd at 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Mercer Library and Community Center. The evening features a full catered Italian dinner, wine, the popular "Book Basket" raffles, and live and silent auctions.
Auctioneer Danny O'Sullivan returns to lead the festivities. Items in the live and silent auctions include one-week vacation stays in North Carolina and Arizona, a gourmet dinner for your group, art by local artists such as Rose King and Terry Daulton, a memorable "Smoking Loon," and much more. New this year: take your chances in the "Wine Pull" or pick up a gift certificate for a local business and support the library.

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.
