Library Gifts Give Back

If you’re a holiday shopper who likes to give gifts that give back, the Springfield-Greene County Library District has some ideas for you.

      The Dad-who-has-everything, the new baby, a favorite teacher or best friend – all would enjoy being remembered through these gifts that promise repeat benefits through the year.

      Non- residents are welcome without cards at library programs like the popular children’s “Storytimes,” but frequent visitors and those who work in Greene County might enjoy greater access to library collections and services.

      The $50 card entitles a family in the same household access to all library services for one year. A gift card is issued stating that the recipient’s out-of-county resident fee has been paid courtesy of the gift giver. Greene County residents may purchase the gift card at the checkout desk of any branch library.

 Donations may be unrestricted or directed to upgrade the children’s Story Garden or meeting rooms. Recipients or the family of those memorialized will receive an acknowledgment from the library district. Campaign envelopes are available at the Library Center, or call Library Foundation Director Michelle Creed, 616-0586.

      Kathleen O’Dell is community relations director of the Springfield-Greene County Library District. She can be reached at
