In the past few months we have had to navigate unprecedented challenges that we never imagined. The Plainville Public Library knows how much you value the library and all we do and we have missed you all. With the Commonwealth’s phased reopening plan announced the Plainville Public Library is not yet open to the public. The Library building is closed to the public but Contactless Takeout is available by calling 508-695-1784 Monday through Thursday between 10:00am and 2:00pm. Staff will be happy to look for items here on our shelves for you whether it is a specific titles or just three good mysteries or books for a third grader.
Our book drops are now open for returns. Please note that any items returned to us will be quarantined for 72 hours as recommended by the CDC before our staff handle them for checkin. All items will be checked in fine free until the social distancing limits are lifted. Book Drops are located at the Library and in the Wood School Parking lot on Messenger St.
We understand you have questions about when we can be open for browsing and computer usage, but we are starting slowly and understand the Commonwealth’s Reopening Plan has library browsing starting in Phase 2. So as of right now we do not have a specific date to open the building to the public.
We thank you for your loyalty and understanding as we work through reopening and meeting your needs. Please know we have already been working hard to socially distance our staff work areas and public computers, limit customer seating inside, create dedicated entrance and exit doors and directional pathways, provide for regular sanitation of high touch areas and comply with the Mandatory Safety Standards for Workplaces.
The Plainville Public Library is grateful for the opportunity to continue serving and assisting you and your family with Contactless Takeout and all of our wonderful online resources.
Stay Well! - Melissa
