June at the Mansfield Public Library
This month we will welcome summer which for many means required summer reading lists, fun beach reads, and hopefully lots of leisure time to stop by the library for some great programs.
The Mansfield Public Library purchases multiple copies of titles on the Mansfield Public School summer reading lists.  Some of these titles are also available as downloadable eBooks and audiobooks on Overdrive. Did you purchase copies on the list? We welcome donations of these titles that are in excellent condition.
Saturday, June 17th is the kick off for this year’s summer reading program for children, teens and adults. ¬†This year’s statewide theme is “Build a Better World.” Children, Teens and Adults can sign up for the chance to earn an entry in the end of summer raffle. ¬†Grand prizes for a child, teen and adult reader have been generously donated by North Easton Savings Bank and the Friends of the Library. Children are invited to enter weekly raffle drawings in the Children’s Room.
Don’t forget to load up your mobile devices as you head out on vacation or a day at the beach. Remember, you can download magazines through Zinio, music and 3 hours of daily streaming from Freegal and ebooks and audiobooks through Overdrive to make vacation packing much lighter!
Make the library your cool air-conditioned oasis and stop by for all your summer vacation needs from beachy reads, dvd series to binge-watch, lots of summer movies and so much more!

 The Library 
“My mum was never too keen on TV, so we kids all went to the library and got books out. Right from the start, I loved the works of Mark Twain. Every time I read about Tom Sawyer, I’d go out and do something low-level naughty, just like him.”

-John Grisham, author
