Children @ Mansfield Public Library

The Children’s Room at the Mansfield Public Library has lots of books, audiobooks, graphic novels, DVDs, CDs, magazines and more; if you’re looking for something but don’t find it, feel free to make a suggestion! The library also has downloadable media, including ebooks, streaming video, downloadable audiobooks, and magazines. The Children’s Room has a great play area with puzzles, toys, puppets and much more. We also have two computers with internet access that children may use (children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult on these computers) and we have two AWE stations available with interactive games for the younger crowd. The library hosts programs for children every month (see below for what’s coming next). Don’t forget to say hello to our library pet hamster, Peanut!

Summer at the Library

Each summer we participate in the Statewide Summer Library Program.  We hold weekly raffles for readers and listeners, and offer many programs for children ages 0-10.  There are many events including evening and Saturday events that allow working parents to enjoy quality entertainment with their children.  There are weekly story times, drop-in events  and other programs throughout the summer. Check our online calendar each June to learn more.

The Massachusetts Summer Library Program is sponsored by your local library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.  We also receive program funding from the Mansfield Bank Charitable Foundation, the Mansfield Cultural Council (a local agency which is supported by the Mass. Cultural Council, a state agency) and the Friends of the Mansfield Library.
