Young Adult Book Discussion

The Mercer County District Library's Youth Department along with the Celina High School Book Discussion Group are joining together to have a combined discussion each month. The choice for February is the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld which is about Tally who is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license --for turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally
will be there. But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world -- and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever. The group is open to all ages 10 and up. Stop by the library and pick up your copy of the book and let us know you would like to come to the discussion on Thursday, March 15 at 7pm.


The Mercer County District Library now offers another convenient customer service: text message notices. Borrowers opting for this service will receive text messages to their cell phones when requested materials are on hold for them. If a borrower has unlimited texting in their cell phone plan, there is no charge for this service—making this the most convenient way of all to receive notices from your library.
