The new East Forest Park library is being described as one large welcome mat as it will soon welcome residents and visitors to wide open spaces, high ceilings, wall-sized windows and state-of-the-art technology.

That was the message Tuesday as members of the Springfield Library Commission were taken on a tour of the library under construction on Surrey Road, adjacent to Mary Dryden School. Construction is scheduled to be completed in October and the library should be equipped, furnished and ready to open by early December, officials said.

All five commission members said they loved what they saw.

“At the new East Forest Park Library, you’re going to see what a 21st century library really looks like,” said Stephen Cary, commission chairman. “With connections through technology that get people to podcasts, videos, and even the ability to make television.”
