The Plain City Public Library, 305 W. Main St., will reopen its doors to the public on May 23 during its grand re-opening from 7 to 9 p.m. 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 May 22 for community members who have participated in the library’s Adopt-a-Bookshelf fundraiser. These donors will get the first look at the newly renovated library and find their adopted shelves and messages 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 use the area under a bookshelf to hand write a signature, message, original art or dedication. To adopt a bookshelf, visit plaincitylib.org/adoptabookshelf to donate online, print a paper application, or visit the library by May 14.
The library will be closed during the move beginning May 3 until May 23. The library’s bookdrop will be available at its permanent location beginning May 7. Until then, patrons are to continue to use the bookdrop outside of the library’s temporary location at 249 W. Main St.
The library will resume regular operating hours of Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. beginning May 24. The library’s digital library and online catalogue will remain live during this closure.
