Summer Reading - To the Schools

At the end of each school year, the Mercer County District Library staff promote the annual summer reading program by performing a skit at each of the Celina City Schools.  We're not sure who has more fun, the kids or the staff...

We discussed what the youth is interested in and what projects we would like to take on. The next meeting is Friday, June 7th at 5pm. 

Local Author Fair

The Mercer County District Library is pleased to present a Local Author Fair on Saturday, September 28.   In keeping with our goal of encouraging reading and writing, the library is offering tables to writers who wish to autograph their books and discuss their published works with fans.

Together with the Stateline Writers Club and the Friends of the Mercer County Library, Vicki and I would be delighted if you would consider joining us for this event. This information will assist with planning and publicity. Applications should be mailed or emailed to the library no later than noon on August 24, 2013. We will make every effort to accommodate each writer who wishes to attend, but space is limited and table assignments will be conducted by library staff. Each writer is responsible for staffing his/her table to showcase their works and for all the details related to book sales.

We are extremely excited about this program and would love to include as many authors as possible so feel free to share this information with your colleagues. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either Vicki DeBolt or Elizabeth Muether. The application form is available on our website (

Whether you’re an avid reader or an aspiring writer, the Local Author Fair is an excellent opportunity to talk with local writers about their work.  Writers of children’s books, nonfiction, and fiction will be on hand to talk about books and their writing process.

Several library staff took part in the Let Your Colors Fly 5K at the Mercer County Fairgrounds on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.  The morning began a little rainy, but as racers took off the rain stopped and the colors began to fly.  Although, our staff didn't win the race, they all had a great time participating and representing the library as a team....proving that our library is MORE THAN JUST BOOKS!  See more pictures on the library's Facebook page,
