The Springfield Public Library and Springfield History Museum are thrilled to welcome submissions for our “Springfield A to Z” Art Contest.
There are no age restrictions in this contest. All ages and ability levels are encouraged to enter. Minors under age 18 must have permission of their parent or guardian to enter.
All residents of Springfield and the immediately surrounding areas of rural East Lane County are eligible to enter.
Employees of the Springfield Public Library and Springfield History Museum are not eligible to enter the contest.
Springfield and rural East Lane County include the city limits of Springfield (including Thurston and Glenwood), the Marcola area, and the McKenzie River communities stretching east to McKenzie Bridge. These communities were chosen because they reflect the mission scope of the Springfield History Museum, whose mission is in part to promote an appreciation of the diverse communities that call Springfield and rural East Lane County home.

Because the Library is in City Hall, we are working with other City departments to determine safe protocols for reopening fully. We want to ensure that we are following state guidelines in order to help put an end to the spread of the virus and to protect library staff and the public. We will be sharing information about reopening as soon as we have a plan to do so safely.
We are available by phone Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm at 541-726-3766 and happy to connect you to current services, such as: computer appointments, curbside pickup, personalized picks, reference services, and virtual programs. Or, visit our information on library services page for more information.
