Starting the week of Sunday May 13, Programs are canceled in preparation for Summer Reading. Summer reading kick off is on June 2.

Family Place Library

The Mansfield Public Library is a now a designated Family Place Library!  Family Place Libraries are a national initiative designed to expand the roles of libraries in the community and promote early childhood development.  In addition to open educational play, the Mansfield Public Library offers a Family Place Workshop twice a year.  The workshop is for children ages 1-3 and their caregivers to learn through play and interact with community professionals about early childhood development.  Call the library at 817-728-3690 to find out about the next Family Place Workshop or see the library calendar for the next Family Place Playtime.

Open play is always available in the children's area whenever the library is open. For more information about Family Place Libraries visit familyplacelibraries.org.
