Library LiNKs in Schools

These sites provide a circulating collection of materials for adults within Arlington Independent School District (AISD) and Mansfield Independent School District (MISD) schools so that families can use school libraries together. These school libraries are open outside regular school hours to the families of children attending these schools.

Library users may request materials from the library’s general collection to be sent to these schools for pickup and may also return materials there. School library staff is able to issue Arlington Public Library cards to adults and children.

Scheduled programming is also offered for families with preschool children at these sites.
