Summer Check Out books must be brought back to the Library during Open House, or during the first week of school in September. To participate, students need a guardian-signed permission form that you can pick up in the Library. Please return the form by May 27th to check out your summer reading books. Happy reading! 

It's May and the Library needs your help. Please stop by the Library and check to see if you have library books checked out. If you do, please bring the books back to the Library before summer break. Thank you for helping us get all the Library books returned.

It can also mean "having qualities of eloquence, ingenuity, or thievishness attributed to the god Mercury or to the influence of the planet Mercury." The boss has a mercurial temperament when at jobsites but she was relaxed and happy at the company picnic.
