The Mercer County District Library is administered by a seven-member Board of Library Trustees – four appointed by the Mercer County Commissioners and three appointed by the Common Pleas Judge. The library board is made up of citizens from Celina, Mendon, Chickasaw, and St. Henry. Since a public library belongs to the entire community, boards of trustees have been created by law to act as the governing body of the library. Additionally, the board adopts and supports library policies. The board is also an advocacy group, supporting the library before the budget commission, the state legislature, civic and cultural organizations, and the public at large.
