SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – As of Monday, March 7, masking in most of the Springfield Town Library became optional. We are still encouraging masking and social distancing to keep everyone safe. Masks will remain required in the children’s room unless Windsor County is in the ‘low transmission’ level on the CDC map. The library will be hosting a Walk-in Vaccine Clinic with the Vermont Department of Health on Tuesday, March 15 from 3-5 p.m. No appointment is needed. The Vermont Department of Health will offer first doses, second doses, and boosters of both Pfizer and Moderna for ages five and up.
On Wednesday, March 16 there will be a DIY Glassware craft for teens and adults at 6 p.m. Come be creative with metallic markers and plastic stencils, or perhaps the artist in you wants to create their own design. This is an in-person craft and will be located in the Flinn Room. Sign up by calling the library or with the link on our website. Thank you to FOSTL for their support of these free adult craft programs. Contact Tracey at email@example.com if you have any questions.
