Springfield's Central Library opens its doors to the public on September 7, 2021 for the first time since March 2020.

City's branch libraries return to pre-pandemic hours

For the first time since March 2020, all the public library buildings in Springfield, Massachusetts are open.

The Central Library reopened its doors this week. The city’s 8 branch libraries, which had reopened in July with limited hours, returned to pre-pandemic schedules.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Springfield City Library Director Molly Fogarty.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
