Neighborhood: Downtown
The Mercantile Library is a membership library. It is a non-profit institution supported by members' annual subscriptions, gifts, and income from an endowment fund. The Library receives no tax support. The name refers not to the collection but to the Library's founders, who were young merchants and clerks. Organized in 1835, it is the city's senior library and one of the oldest cultural institutions in the Midwest.

Anyone may belong to the Library. There are no requirements of residency and there is no need to be nominated by a member. Membership is diverse in age, income, and cultural background. The historic name of the Library is the Young Men's Mercantile Library Association, but women have been members for more than a century. Members are united by an interest in the printed word.

The basic annual subscription is $45. Household membership entitles all members of a household to use of the Library. Members of the public are invited and encouraged to visit the Library, but use of the collection and reading room is restricted to current subscribers.
