The Friends of the Mansfield Public Library is a group of volunteers
who actively support the library and its mission through fundraising, promotion, and advocacy.
the Friends is a great way to support your local library and to make a difference in your community.
To provide financial support for the library, the Friends operate an ongoing used
book sale, which raises thousands of dollars each year. The Friends also offer durable canvas book bags in two sizes,
plastic book bags, electronic time-keeping bookmarks, and "Really Big Coloring Books" for sale in the library.
Check out our "Friends Store" page for more information on these items. If you have used, recently published books,
you can donate them to our used book sale and receive a tax deduction! Just bring your used books to the circulation
desk at the library.
The Friends also put on the fantastic "Mansfield Reads!" program each year, in which a renowned author visits our city to discuss the particular
book chosen for that year's program. Different exciting events are scheduled each year to tie in with the book's
theme. A Friday night "Author Event" is scheduled in which the public is invited to meet the author face-to-face.
Previous Reads! authors include well-known, award-winning writers Robert Olen Butler, Paul Boller, Elmer Kelton, JA
Jance, H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger, and Tim Madigan. The Friends also hosts a "Mansfield Writes!" each fall in which a panel of popular local authors share writing tips with an audience
of aspiring writers. See our Mansfield Reads! and Mansfield Writes! pages for more details.
