June at the Mansfield Public Library

Summer is on the way and that means summer reading.
For adults, its time to stock your devices with downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines and streaming videos to lighten your suitcases when you take off on vacation.  Hot days at the beach mean lots of time for reading and we’ll have a collection of great summertime titles on display.  Be sure to register here for the summer reading program, Exercise Your Mind. Read!  Sign up, log your books, and be entered into a raffle drawing at the end of the summer.
For teens, we have multiple copies of the titles on the Mansfield High School summer reading lists. Many of the titles are available as eBooks and/or eAudiobooks.  Be sure to register here for our teen summer reading program, Get In the Game. Read.  Beginning on June 18th, you can sign up, log your book progress, complete challenges and win prizes!
Children can participate in the summer reading program On Your Mark, Get Set, Read.   Signing up is as easy as 1, 2, 3!  Put your name on one of our colorful paper megaphones.  Grab a schedule of events and a reading log.  Plan your summer of fun and start reading!  Keep track of how much time you read and enter our reading raffles whenever you happen to be at the Library.  We have 6 winners each week.
In addition to all the fun you can have reading, the library will continue to host amazing programs for all ages throughout the summer. This month you can learn to de-clutter your home and take great digital photographs with your smart phone.  Take in a movie with us or even pat an alpaca!
Be sure to stop by the library before you hit the beach!
