The Springfield City Library: All Yours, Just Ask.   Our mission is:

Building connections | Broadening horizons | Strengthening community
The community source for literacy, technology and information

Through enriching, enlightening, entertaining, and educational programs we strive to achieve our mission and celebrate Springfield.

We book programs for adults, teens, and children. We have booked musicians, puppeteers, storytellers, poets, science educators, speakers, dancers, authors, and dramatists.

We have 9 library locations in the City of Springfield in Western Massachusetts. We offer programs at all of them, although only some have community rooms. The Central Library has a large rotunda where numerous music concerts have been held. Audience sizes have ranged from 10-100 in our various locations. No library has a stage or similar set-up.

We are Colleagues in the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Cultural Portfolio.

I Have Worked With

  • October 2014

    Alturas Duo performed twice at the Library in Oct. 2014: once, during the ¡Fiesta! Celebration: Flan Contest, Book Signing, and
    Concert, and and again as part of our Rotunda Rhythms concert series at the Central Library.

  • May 2014

    Too Human is a fun, jazzy duo that we have booked a number of times. Delightful to work with, they are accomplished musicians and songwriters. Their most recent performance was as part of our Rotunda Rhythms Sunday concert series.

  • September 2013

    We have hired Hugh Hanley quite a few times. Most recently, Hugh presented a workshop for family child care educators titled of this program will be “Circle of Songs” combining music and literacy learning.
