Library journal has launched the "Losing Libraries" website to chronicle what's happening to libraries across America as a result of the economic downturn.

Book Sale

The Friends of the Springfield Town Library (FOSTL) will be holding their annual book sale to benefit the Springfield Town Library this Saturday, July 24, from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the National Guard Armory on Fairground Rd. in North Springfield.

"A Day in the Life of a Library Page" YouTube Contest!!

The staff at your library have been hard at work on a YouTube promotional video for the library! We hope you have fun watching it and please pass along the fun to your friends. After you watch the video you're invited to enter a library contest to win a pair of Sony wireless headphones. These headphones are great to use to listen to tv without disturbing others in the room and will connect to audio systems as well as tvs.

What do I have to do to win these snazzy headphones, you ask?

There are ten characters/authors/artists portrayed in the video. Guess all ten characters correctly and you will be entered into the drawing for the Sony wireless headphones. You may write down your answers and drop them off at the library or email your answers to You must be a Springfield Town Library patron to enter and entries will be accepted through Tuesday, September 7th. One entry per person.
