Springfield officials, residents saddened by planned closure of 3 branch libraries
“Local officials and residents reacted with sadness this week to news that the city plans to close three library branches on July 2 as part of a series of city budget cuts and reduced staffing. The Library Department will be closing the Pine Point branch on Boston Road, the Liberty Street branch in Liberty Heights and the East Forest Park branch on Island Pond Road. “I wish they would keep it open,” said Madelyn Rolon, of Beacon Terrace, who was at the Pine Point branch Wednesday with her two children, Brandon Lopez, 7, and Tanisha Claudio, 16. “My son likes to read books. She gets books for projects at school. It’s sad they are going to close it.”
