September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

In recognition of this special month, the Springfield Town Library is holding a raffle in the Children’s Room. Anyone who gets a new library card and those who already have a library card are eligible to win one of four copies of Biscuit’s Picnic accompanied by a Biscuit look-alike toy.

A library card is a must have back-to-school item as well as a ticket for exploring new adventures and finding information. If you know of a Springfield resident who doesn’t have a card, encourage him/her to get one. Non-resident cards ($40 per family/year) make great gifts for out-of-town family and friends. For more information call 802-885-3108.
