This year the Statewide Summer Reading theme is “On your Mark, Get Set, Read!” focusing on wellness, sports and fitness. We would love to host a pro each week to read a story out loud to the kids who attend and then talk about what their job is like in the sport and fitness industry and answer questions. We can provide a book to read, or bring a favorite. The time commitment would be about an hour. Please talk to Melissa Campbell (email@example.com or 508-695-1784) if you would like to be a part of our unique “Meet the Pro” program to bring together reading and fitness in a positive way for the children in Plainville and the surrounding area.
Don't forget our Package Pick up service is available year round. So don't let your packages sit outside waiting for the wrong person to come along. It could be just because you don't want the recipient of the package to see the box before you do. Plainville residents can send their packages in their name but to the Plainville Public Library address at 198 South St, Plainville MA. 02762. Your library card in good standing that matches the name on the package is required at pick up. For full rules see http://www.plainvillepubliclibrary.org/package-pick-up.html
Scanning Party! Monday April 25 4-7:30pm
We ask that you bring no more than 10 historical photographs of Plainvilleand its residents doing some great stuff. Like parties, in front of new homes, sporting events and more. The staff will scan the photographs while you fill out a form to tell us as much as you can about the photograph.
Three digital copies will be made: One for you to take home (bring a Flash Drive with you). One copy will be for the use of the Historical Commission to use on thier Facebook page. And the last one will be uploaded to the SAILS Digital History Collection which is indexed and archived for history buffs everywhere to see.

Neptune is a beautiful, calm dog who loves being read to. He loves just hanging out and listening to you practice your reading out loud. Bring any book you are reading right now or pick one off the shelves at the library. Reading Therapy Dogs have been proven to help struggling readers become more confident in their abilities because Neptune doesn't judge. He just listens. Neptune will be here the first Wednesday of every month at 4pm. Come READ!
Melissa loves reading mysteries and historical fiction. She watches way too much hockey. And would like to have more time for crafting cool stuff.
