“Our priority is to better patrons’ lives through education and service. We want the library to be a community hub that connects, educates, and empowers residents of all ages.”
— LIBRARY DIRECTOR AMANDA KING
A library card from any of the three consortium libraries will be honored at all the others IF the patron lives within one of the consortium cities. Any patron who has a card from Kennedale but does not live within the Kennedale city limits will be denied service from Arlington but will be allowed to use the Mansfield Public Library.
