Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest to benefit the Plainville Food Pantry
Bring in your decorated pumpkin by October 15 to the Plainville Library. Please DO NOT CUT the pumpkin, but paint it and glue stuff onto it to make it your favorite book character. Voting will begin on October 17. You will vote for your favorite by donating a can of non-perishable food in the basket in front of the pumpkin. Vote as much as you like. Every canned good will go to the Plainville Food Pantry. The winner with the most votes (canned goods) will be announced Halloween morning and you can pick up your decorated pumpkins on Halloween between 10am and 2pm. All ages can participate: Adults, teens, tweens and kids! This is one from our contest a couple of years back: Wimpy Kid Pumpkin! Need some ideas? Check out the pinterest page.
Closed Fridays and Sundays
Closed on federal and state holidays

Plainville's own Little Free Library
Plainville’s first Little Free Library is at Telford Park at 142 South St, Plainville. Brian Berry, an Eagle Scout Candidate, made and installed the Little Free Library as part of his project. The Friends of the Plainville Public Library, Inc. have paid for the official Charter Membership, and will provide the initial books. Little Free Library is a nationwide movement featuring a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share. We hope this Little Free Library will serve parents to get books to read to their children while at the park, and for any park visitors to exchange books of interest.
SHOP at SMILE.AMAZON and they make a donation to the Friends of the Library.
