Letter to the Editor: Library celebrates Friends group

The Mansfield Public Library will be spending the week of Oct. 16-22 celebrating its Friends of the Library group as part of the 11th annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week. The Friends of the Mansfield Public Library were established in 1965 and have raised thousands of dollars for the library, as well as volunteering many hours of their time promoting the library. The Friends participated in North Texas Giving Day for the first time this year, not only reaching their goal of $2,500 from 50 individual donors, but exceeding it! These funds will completely pay for next year’s Summer Reading Program at the library.
