About the New Building


The East Forest Park Branch Library is one of the busiest locations in the Springfield City Library System, but the current strip mall location makes it hard to provide much-needed services to the public. The new building will include a number of great features: increased space, meeting rooms and study rooms, a teen media lab, dedicated parking, and more.

*PLEASE NOTE that the floor plan images and renderings may change as the building project progresses.
