The Mansfield and Richland County Public Library will be hosting a weekly program for children and families all the way through July 27th. Each week, a performer will entertain live audiences in the library and all library branches throughout the county. According to Diane Tobias, Coordinator of Services for Children, the goal of the program is to get kids into the library on a weekly basis and get them reading.

"It's important for kids to continue reading over the summer," says Tobias. 

On Tuesday, Chip Richter of Youngstown performed his Family Concert for a sizable audience of children and parents in the Main Library on W. 3rd St. It was Richter's first time playing the library, and the musician treated listeners to original audience particpation songs as well as some "summer music" by the Beatles.
