July at the Mansfield Public Library

The Mansfield Public Library is the place to be this summer!  We have a variety of events planned for all ages.  Join a drum circle, watch a movie, color a picture, listen to a folk duo, sing along with local favorite Wayne Potash, meet a miniature horse, win summer reading prizes and even play mini-golf inside the library!
Take a look below at all the fun events we have planned to keep you visiting the library this month.  Remember to stock up on books, movies, audiobooks, and music cds,  both in the library and online!
Freegal®Music is a free music service from your library. The Mansfield Library now has access to streaming! All you need is your library card number. Freegal offers access to about 7 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. In total the collection is comprised of music from over 28,000 labels with music that originates in over 80 countries. There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Access to Freegal is limited to patrons of subscribing libraries.
Also available as a FREE App in your app store! Download music right to the app in your smart device and listen at any time!
Check us out this July!

The Library
“It’s funny that we think of libraries as quiet demure places where we are shushed by dusty, bun-balancing, bespectacled women. The truth is libraries are raucous clubhouses for free speech, controversy and community. Librarians have stood up to the Patriot Act, sat down with noisy toddlers and reached out to illiterate adults. Libraries can never be shushed.”
–Paula Poundstone, comedien
