Last year alone the Friends of the Springfield Library provided funding giving 40,000 adults, teens and children the opportunity to enjoy educational and entertaining library programs, such as live animal, magician and puppet performances, as well as concerts by groups like The Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra and the Premier Brass Quintet. Please ensure the continuation of these valuable programs by donating to the Friends of the Springfield Library on Valley Gives Day, December 12.
