Springfield City Library Director Molly Fogarty stated, “We at the Springfield City Library are so excited to be welcoming back patrons to our branches next month and to our Central Library location in September. It has been a long 15 months without buildings filled with the laughter, learning and helpful conversations that make us who we are.  Although we have been serving the community online through virtual programming and curbside pickup while our doors have been closed, we look forward to seeing everyone again in person.  We thank everyone for their patience as we make this transition to our new normal.”
