Welcome to Seasons of Light - an annual celebration of reading and bringing light to the community through donations and art. To participate you can take part in our Winter Reading Challenge, donate to our Give Light campaign, take home an art project or view the Springfield History Museum's Illumination art installation.
In partnership with Carry It Forward, we invite you to give light to someone less fortunate by donating basic, life-saving supplies: specifically new (or gently used) warm socks, hats, gloves, as well as hand and foot warmers.
Donations boxes are located inside the library, the Springfield History Museum and at participating businesses including Chuck and Alice, Trash-n-Treasure Antiques, Main Street Sweets, Plank Town Brewing Company and The Washburne Cafe.
A relaxed reading challenge consisting of reading as much as you can, reading specific titles and doing a little exploring during our rainy winter months. As different aspects of 'Seasons of Light' are introduced, participants have the chance to earn badges and extra chances to win a bag of books from the 'Friends of the Springfield Public Library'.
Register online for the Seasons of Light All Ages Winter Reading Challenge. The challenge runs from January 1st through February 18th.
Visit downtown Springfield between now and March 11 to enjoy the glowing power of art and history in our community.This year the talented team including Aimee Yogi, Thomas Hiura and Mimi Nolledo are working with the community to explore what it means to be an Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander in Springfield, Oregon.
