It is the mission of Springfield Public School libraries to support equity and proficiency, to be an integral part of the learning community, and to develop library programs that are reflective and respectful of the diverse needs of all stakeholders.  

We do this by:

The overarching goal is to equip students with the skills necessary to become college and career ready.

Statement on Equity and Inclusion   

The librarians of the Springfield Public Schools endorse school library collections as integral components of the curriculum, which represent the varied experiences of our patrons and diverse points of view on both current and historical issues. A representative library collection enables our patrons to see themselves and others, illuminating the human experience in its unity and variety. 

SPS library collections support: 

  • Intellectual growth 

  • Personal development 

  • Individual interests 

  • Recreational needs 

SPS library collections develop: 

  • Empathy 

  • Respect and appreciation for varied beliefs and values

  • Critical thinking 

  • Creativity and innovation
