This all started with a story of a family that was cleaning out their father's house. He had a lot of pictures and they took the ones they wanted, and didn't know what to do with the rest. We hear they burned them along with all the man's old paperwork. Memories lost forever! The Plainville Public Library and the Plainville Historical Commission are working together with the SAILS Library Network to scan and document personal photographs of Plainville people and places. Bring up to 10 photos to the Plainville Public Library on October 24 between 4 and 7pm.
