The Springfield Public Library and the Springfield Museum buildings will stay temporarily closed until May 31, 2020. The City of Springfield closed the Library and Museum to help reduce the risk and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. The Springfield Library is a centralized, and popular, community hub making it difficult to ensure proper physical distancing measures at all times.

Community members are asked to continue keeping their Library materials at this time. The Library is creating a plan for safely returning materials and will continue to follow public health guidelines.

For residents looking for news and entertainment, Springfield Public Library cardholders have access to databases full of movies, books, and music. Some of these databases are Access Video On Demand: films, documentaries, and television series. For digital books and audiobooks, Library2Go offers popular fiction and nonfiction titles for all ages; and, streaming and downloadable music are available through Freegal. A complete list of SPL’s online offerings is at
