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:
The Province 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 funding 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 progress to 4-5 minutes, etc. Thank you for your support.
Sign up for ART CLASSES with L.J. Anderson... L.J. offers instruction, as students follow along at their workstations. The last hour is for those who would like to stay to practice, ask for additional help, and socialize with classmates. There is a water cooler in the library, but if you prefer, you are welcome to bring a drink of your own. $10 per class. Register at Patron Services Counter. More under "Library News" Still room for a few more students. Call to register. 204-853-2039.

Our book sale shelves and paperback rack are adjacent to the Archives wall... always great prices, no worry of damage, late fees, or loss. All funds raised benefit the Library: purchasing new books or movies for our collection, or in program development.
WELLNESS RESOURCE CENTRE: Along the West wall, our Resource Centre features all information on services available in the RM of Springfield, from physical to mental health and awareness. We are fortunate to have the many facilities we do, including the support of the Andrew Dunn Org., who donated funds to create the centre. If you are a care provider, within the RM, please see Donna to ensure that your organization is represented. We feel it important that members of the community have private access to information normally found only at medical centres. If you seek information not found in our displays, please send an email to Donna, or give her a call, and she will accomodate your request.
