General Objective

The objective of the Springfield Township Public Library is to select, organize, preserve and make freely and easily available to the people of the community printed and other materials, within the limitations of space and budget, which will aid them in the pursuit of education, information, research, recreation and in the creative use of leisure time.  The goal of the Library is the maximum use of its collection by the greatest number of persons.

It is the responsibility of the Library to satisfy the diverse reading needs and interests of the residents of the community through the selection, acquisition and organization of library materials and to provide skilled guidance in their use.

In its selection of books and other materials the Springfield Township Library subscribes fully to the principles adopted in 1948 by the American Library Association in its Library Bill of Rights and endorses the Freedom to Read Statement.
