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.

Cheer on the race walking athletes competing for a place on the Olympic team on June 26th. The trial is happening on 5th and Main Streets, starting from the City Hall Fountain Plaza. As the plaza, City Hall, and the parking lots will be used for the trials, library services will be suspended for the day. The library will resume services on Monday, June 28th.
We are very encouraged by the new facemask guidance issued by the CDC and the Oregon Governor’s Office over the last few days. However, this updated guidance is not yet reflected within existing OHA guidance and Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules. As a City department, the library is required to follow the OHA and OSHA rules. We ask your cooperation as we await additional clarity, and to continue to wear masks while in the library and City Hall.
