Mansfield Reads! One City One Book is a community-wide reading event that encourages all Mansfield residents to read the same book at the same time. The program goals are to promote awareness of the library and foster a sense of community through reading. The concept began in Seattle in 1998 and has spread across the country into many communities large and small. In October 2022, the Friends of Mansfield Public Library is proud to bring in author Peter Heller to discuss the book The Guide.
