Friends of the Plain City Public Library
Thanks to the generosity and support of our communities, the Plain City Public Library has been able to conduct many of the services currently available. And with your help we will continue to provide material and programs for all ages. A number of our local businesses and civic organizations such as the Friends of the Plain City Public Library also provide much needed support. The Friends of the Plain City Public Library is a membership volunteer organization committed to helping the Library with service goals through fundraisers and event assistance. The Friends of the Library provide a fun and easy way for individuals to serve the library community. And becoming a Friend of the Library is simple! Just download the membership form at the link below and drop off or mail your membership to the library at 305 West Main St. For individuals looking to be even more actively involved, the Friends hold monthly meetings at the Library to brainstorm new fundraising ideas and programs. Watch the Library’s event calendar for meeting times and dates.
