Friends of Lincoln Library

The Friends of Lincoln Library invite you to join them in supporting Springfield's Public Library. They share a common belief that a good library is extremely important to the intellectual and cultural growth of the community. Members of the Friends work together to help Lincoln Library in a number of ways. Funds raised from annual book sales are given to the library to enhance the collection, support progams and purchase equipment. In addition, the Friends provide Dial-A-Story (525-5000) for children. They support the library staff by underwriting the cost of its annual Staff Institute.
