In our efforts to bring you the best library service possible, the library has joined the Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium (LMxAC). During the transition, we will be unable to accept any holds between May 15 and May 31. Please note that holds placed directly by patrons during that time will also be lost. We are sorry for this inconvenience and look forward to coming back better than ever on June 1.

We are pleased to announce that the firewall for the library's computer network will be undergoing a major upgrade on Wednesday, May 31. Unfortunately, this will require the shutting down of our Internet network for a period of approximately two hours, most likely to occur between 1:00 and 3:00 PM. It is possible that subsequent sporadic outages may occur up until about 5:00 PM that afternoon. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

From May 26th - 31st, as we transition into our new system, we will continue to be able to check out library materials but will not be able to perform any other functions, including item check in, processing of payments; updating existing library cards, registering new patrons, or looking up anyone’s account. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LIBRARY CARD with you as we will need the barcode number on your card to be able to check anything out to you on these two dates.

Please see our current want ad under the Employment Opportunities tab on the right hand side of our web page.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Who can participate?

Any child from birth until the start of kindergarten.
Only Springfield resident cardholders may register for this reading program.

How long will it take?

The program is self-paced. There is no deadline. Every book counts. Books read by others count too. Repetition is key to learning, so you can read your child's favorite books over and over again. 

How do I start?

1.) Register at the Children's Services desk. Have an iPhone or iPad running on iOS7 or later? Download the APP. Instructions on using the app are here: pdf button

2.) Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, or toddler.

3.) Record the book on your paper log or your digital log (through the app).

4.) When your book log is completed, turn it into the library!

Little listeners get little prizes for every 100 books!
