Mansfield Reads! 2020 Cancelled

It is with heavy hearts that we have cancelled the 2020 Mansfield Reads! Evening with the Author and all other associated programming. Due to recommended restrictions and timelines for social gatherings during the Coronavirus crisis, we feel it is in the best interests of all involved to cancel. The health and safety of our patrons, author, volunteers and staff must be our first and foremost concern. Thank you for your understanding.

In addition the April meeting of the Friend of the Mansfield Library will be cancelled. We will revisit the May meeting at the end of April.

The Library is Closed, but what about my items?

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time. Here are some reminders during the library’s temporary closure:

✅ Enjoy your library materials a little longer! Our outside book drops are open, but all due dates have been extended.

✅ Current holds have been suspended, but not canceled. You will not be able to pick up your holds while the library is closed. Holds will be processed and ready to be picked up once the library is safe to open.
