All people entering the library will be required to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nostrils at all times that they are inside the building; temperatures will be taken upon entering the library and anyone registering a temperature of 99.5 F or higher will be instructed to leave. Likewise, anyone exhibiting known symptoms of COVID-19 will not be given admittance to the library building.
Can I ask a librarian for help?
The Springfield Free Public Library is pleased to announce the availability of Remote Assist, a new technology that will enable librarians to provide direct assistance to patrons using the library's public computers while still allowing the librarians to continue to work from their own desks.
The ability to provide socially distanced computer assistance offers peace of mind to both library patrons and staff members. While our librarians are happy to provide assistance with such tasks as filling out job applications and other online forms, online shopping and online banking, please keep in mind that it is outside the scope of the librarian's job to assume the entire responsibility for handling these tasks.
