The Friends of the Springfield Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the work of the Springfield Library. The Friends work to promote awareness of library resources, raise funds for special programming, and advocate on behalf of library interests.
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.
The Springfield Library Foundation was formed in 2005 and is incorporated as a 501(c)3 tax exempt, not-for-profit corporation organized and operated exclusively for the benefit of the Springfield City Library.
The Springfield City Library values the time and the interest of citizens who would like to volunteer. All those interested should speak with the manager or supervisor of the branch library where they would like to help.
