Mercer begins plans to expand the library again

Over the next 13 years, the library’s collection more than doubled and the number of annual visitors to the library more than tripled. The library continued to grow in numbers of users, books and movies checked out, computer users, and children’s program attendees.

In 2007 the library circulated a survey of Mercer residents asking about their use of the library, and the overwhelming response was that the library needs more space. A group of library supporters and town board members convened to discuss the possibility of adding on to the current library.
