The Friends of the Springfield Public Library is a non-profit organization that focuses public attention on library services, facilities, and needs. Funds raised by the Friends events help to strengthen and expand library services and to stimulate the use of the library facilities as a resource center for the entire community.
The Springfield Public Library Foundation secures financial opportunities and cultivates community relationships which grow essential and innovative library services and programs. Visit their webpage to learn more about how to support the library, and about how they support the Springfield community as a whole.

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.
