The Museum of Science is now allowing discounted admission with our Library Passes. Book your pass on the day you wish to go to the Museum of Science and follow the directions to also book timed tickets with the Museum directly. You will need to show both the dated library pass confirmation and timed tickets confirmation at the gate to enter, either electronically on your device or on paper.
The Friends of the Plainville Public Library run a continuous Book and Puzzle sale every day the library is open for Walk in Service. Most Books are $1. Puzzles range from $1 - $10. Kids books are 50 cents each. Beat Bargain in town! Donations are added every week, so check back often.
And yes, we are taking donations, during regular hours as well.

Surprise! The library is leaving books in plastic bags outside near popular places. We call it Finders Keepers - because you know the rules of that - you find it - you keep it. That's right a book to keep is all yours if you find one of Finder's Keepers bags.

Come grab your books and movies to tide you over. We are open for walk in service Monday - Wednesday 10:00am - 12:00pm and 1:00 - 3:00pm. We are usually open Wednesday night from 4-7pm, but with this storm coming we can't be sure when it is going to hit - so come in early!
Do you or your kids like to color, paint or draw? We are soliciting artwork drawn on our special handouts for our new Art Share Because We Care initiative. Turn in your artwork to us and we will send it to a Senior in need of a pick-me-up in Plainville. Many Seniors in this time of COVID are struggling with feeling alone and this is just one way we, as a community, can let them know we are thinking about them. You can even nominate people you know (not just Seniors) who might need an Art Share Because We Care envelope in the mail to brighten their day. Nominations are accepted at the Plainville Public Library circulation desk. Please turn in your artwork on our special handout available online or at the library, or your own paper no bigger than 8 ½ x 11”, so we can fit it in a regular envelope. Sheet to Print at Home
The Plainville Public Library will be closing at 3pm on Wednesday, November 25. Please plan on picking up your holds early this week.
We will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday from Thursday, November 26 through Sunday, November 30. We are using this time to give a needed PAUSE for our staff and to do some deep cleaning at the library.
We hope you have a wonderful time with those closest to you this Thanksgiving. Stay Safe!
The Library is closed in honor of Veteran's Day on Wednesday November 11.
We thank you for your service.
The Plainville Library invites families with children 6 and older to register for our Lego Club @ Home. The first 20 families who register will receive a Lego Starter Package containing brand new Legos donated to us by Lego Discoveryland in Boston. Each month we send our Lego Club email containing a building challenge, STEM activity and other cool Lego information. Families are welcome to show everyone their creations by posting on Facebook or Instagram using #plainvillelego and tag the library at @plainvilleMAlib. So come be part of the Lego Club and create at home but share your building online. Registration is on our online calendar for the designated pick up day of December 16.
Melissa loves reading mysteries and historical fiction. She watches way too much hockey. And would like to have more time for crafting cool stuff.
