We know that you may have full library access already, but this school year make sure your children have their most important school supply; their library card! With a library card, your children can use all resources at Mansfield Public Library, including access to Tutor.com, a one-to-one online tutoring service connecting kids to qualified tutors from any Internet-enabled computer. Students (and parents too!) can get help for any kind of academic question in math, science, English, social studies and writing. The tutors work with students in kindergarten through 12th grade and even AP level class work and intro-level college coursework. All you need is a library card and a computer or mobile device with internet access.
Also, be sure to download the new SAILS library app. You can enter your library card and never have to search for your card again! The app allows you to search the catalog, check your account, see our events, and so much more. Download it today in the iTunes or Google Play store.
Wear your pajamas and bring along your favorite stuffed animal or blanket to snuggle.

Goodbye and Good Luck Amy! It is with heavy hearts that we must say goodbye this month to our fabulous Reference/YA Librarian, Amy Rosa. Amy started with the Mansfield Public library in the winter of 2015. She has been a huge asset to the Mansfield Public Library and under her direction adult and YA programming has flourished. Amy was instrumental in the design of our new Teen Space and has been a great advocate for teens in the library. Amy brought Books In Bloom to our library every May, Blind Date with a Book each February and planned a successful One Book One Community Read every year. She will be greatly missed by staff, and patrons of all ages. Please stop by before the end of the month to wish her the best on her new venture.
Come hang out! Just for grades 6 -12. See all programs on our online calendar.
