In Springfield Public Schools, our school libraries are learning laboratories where information, technology and inquiry come together to assist with 21st-century learning. Our school media specialists and library paraprofessionals are committed to providing the resources students need — both traditional (books) and modern (multimedia) — not only to complete their assignments, but to take them to a different level.
In a world cluttered with information, our media specialists work with classroom teachers and other learning specialists to get students the tools and skills they need to navigate the complicated virtual world and prepare for living, working and lifelong learning in the 21st century.

Far from shrinking into irrelevance, our libraries are embracing the opportunities for students to become discriminating users in a diverse information landscape and to develop the intellectual scaffolds for learning deeply through information. School libraries are the school’s physical and virtual learning commons where inquiry, thinking, imagination, discovery, and creativity are central to students’ information-to-knowledge journey, and to their personal, social and cultural growth.

We invite you to explore the vast set of resources available for use in teaching and learning.
