Emergency Preparedness

Scott Leite, Mansfield's Health Agent, has dropped off little cards that will help you prepare for an emergency! One side of the card lists emergency and non-emergency numbers for the town of Mansfield, and the other side lists an "emergency supply reminder." It includes a list of items to have on hand in case of an emergency, and it includes water, prescriptions, flashlights, candles etc. These cards are available for adults to take.

Please take a survey and help us tell our Massachusetts government why library and library network funding is so important.

Live Homework Help

We're working on getting the word out that Live Homework Help, our on-line tutoring service, is now for elementary students through adult learners...including folks studying for their GED.
The Sun Chronicle's new Mansfield reporter, Matt Kakley, plans to do a feature article about this service, and we'd love to include someone who uses it in the article, even with a photo! If you know of a student who has enjoyed the benefits of Live Homework Help, please let me know! Thanks!
