Services

Kids Book Bundles - Get a kids book bundle prepared especially for you! Answer a few questions and we'll get a stack of books ready for you to pick up at the front desk!  

Storybook Trail - Walk around the library to the park and read pages of a kids book as you go along the crushed limestone pathway. Park at the library and look for the sign. The trail goes in a loop around the Civic Center, playground, and back to the library parking lot. No cost. Always open.

Read-a-Likes - Is your child not sure what to read next? Answer a few questions and we'll send you recommendations based on your child's interests.

TALK - Text and Learn for Kindergarten sends two text messages each week with activities that parents and caregivers can incorporate into their routines with their children. It also notifies parents of free activities and services at the library. TALK is available to parents and caregivers in Michigan with children ages 5 and under, and is in use by the Springfield Township Library. Sign up by texting TALK to 75547 or by visiting their website.

1000 Hours Outside - We are happy to promote and encourage your participation in the 1000 Hours Outside (1000hoursoutside.com) incentive. According to their website, American children are spending 1,200 hours per year on screentime, and the program aims to reclaim some of that time in ways that shift the use of our time toward more productive and healthy outcomes. A thousand hours is a huge goal; why not see how close you can come? Tracking sheets are available on our website, in our Storytime Room, or at 1000hoursoutside.com
