Summer Reading Club
Check back weekly to see a community reading update
What is Summer Reading Club?
Summer Reading Club is an engaging learning program that encourages all ages to read over the summer for prizes and discover new things by attending library programs. Everyone is invited to join in the fun, young children to adults. There is a large body of research demonstrating that summer slide can cause students to lose 2-3 months of learning, even more for students in low income families without access to books. Now is the time to sign up for our Summer Reading Club and beat the summer slide!
Check out all of the fun and educational programs for the entire family this summer. All programs are free and provide all the supplies you may need. Please make sure to note specific locations for each program as it will vary. Registration is required for some programs. You can register for free at mansfieldtexas.gov/calendar two weeks before the event.
Here are just some of the many prizes you could win this summer. Sign up for the Summer Reading Club to see the full list of prizes.
