SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The Springfield Board of Education will have its first meeting in about month on Monday.  

The library introduces a new program Friday, Great American Short Stories.  From the website:  The library will offer three free, non-credit classes on the American short story that will provide participating adults with the opportunity to explore 20th century works in a relaxed and casual setting where discussion is encouraged and no grades are awarded.

The readings will be enhanced by in-class handouts and the screening of excerpts from documentary films. The classes will be held from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Two weeks before each session, copies of the stories to be discussed will be available at the library at no charge to registered class participants.
