MONEY! MONEY! MONEY! Hopefully, that caught your attention :) It is critical that we continue to receive Provincial and Municipal funding to keep the library operating. PLEASE- take a few minutes (the short version of the survey took less than 2 minutes for those who completed it online at the library) and answer the simple questions about the importance, use, and suggestions you have regarding your library. Here are more details:
*Minister Rachel Squires is gathering statistics to ascertain the importance of LIBRARIES to the residents of Manitoba. We implore you to take a few minutes to complete the survey in order to continue receiving the level of funding we receive to provide Library Services in the RM of Springfield. There are 3 versions of the survey, in graduating length. The first takes 2 minutes or less, next progresses to 4-5 minutes, etc. Thank you for your support.

All artwork is available to purchase, with 25% donated to the library. Thanks to all artists for their generous support.
