SUMMER READING ROADTRIP 2024 is heading your way!
Our reading program will run from Tuesday, June 26 - Friday August 3. Party Saturday August 4. Library programs are free unless noted. The summer reading goal is to foster a love of reading. To that end, our program is noncompetitive and expanding this year to include a "read to me group"! The summer reading program is open to children age 2-11 in two groups: Read to me ages 2-5 and Readers ages 6-11. SIGN UP BEGINS JUNE 1. Forms will be available at Temple Elementary School and at the Mansfield Library. Forms may be dropped off at the Library or with Billie at the school.

Story and craft hour is being offered 2 times per week this year and is geared to children ages 6-10. ADVANCE SIGN UP BEGINS JUNE 11 AT THE LIBRARY. Story and craft days are Tuesdays at 4pm and Fridays at 10:30am. A maximum of 12 children can participate each time. Stories and crafts change weekly.

Preschool story time for ages 2-5 will be offered on Mondays at 10:30am. No sign up is required.

As always, keep your eyes open for the hidden picture! Bring it in to the library and get a prize! In addition, when you come in to write down the books you read, put your name in the jar for weekly prize drawings!

11 year olds! Participate in summer reading and help younger kids, too! Volunteer to help with crafts!
