Don’t miss out on the televised readings from the book by local faces in town on Mansfield Cable Access starting March 1 with Chapter 1. Each evening a new chapter will be read and televised. Check out their schedule here.

 The Friends of the Library sponsor many of our library programs as well as funding our museum passes. March is membership month and you can join the Friends for as little as $10 per year.
