Plain City Library announces reopening

Staff report

The Plain City Public Library will reopen its doors to the public from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23 during its Grand Reopening. Members of the community are invited to experience the complete interior renovation of the library. Enhancements include new technology and additional multipurpose spaces with a freshly imagined children’s reading area, featuring hints of a tree canopy and soft clover underfoot, secretly nestled inside the library.

An exclusive invitation-only donor preview will be held on Tuesday, May 22 for community members who have participated in the library’s Adopt-a-Bookshelf fundraiser. These donors will be invited to have the first look at the newly renovated library and to find their adopted shelf and message before the completed project is open to the public. It’s not too late to become a donor. For a one-time $50 donation, participants will use the area under a bookshelf to hand write a signature, message, original art or dedication. To adopt a bookshelf, simply visit to donate online, print a Paper Application, or visit the library by Monday, May 14. We appreciate this opportunity to grow a library for you.

The library will be closed during the move beginning Thursday, May 3 until its evening reopening on May 23. The library’s book drop will be available at our permanent location beginning Monday, May 7. Until then, patrons are to continue to use the book drop outside of the library’s temporary location at 249 W. Main St. The library will resume regular operating hours of Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning on Thursday, May 24. The library’s digital library and online catalog will remain live during this closure.

The Plain City Public Library is located at 305 W. Main St.
