The Literacy Program at the Plymouth Public Library has an immediate need for nonEnglish-language speakers to assist with our ESL program (Portuguese and Vietnamese in particular, but other languages as well!).

Just around the corner to your right when you enter the main library, you will find our used book store. Proceeds from these sales go into the general fund of the Foundation.

In the rear of the library’s parking lot, you will see these bins. Think of the library whenever you are purging your bookshelves and closets! Donations benefit the library.
We don’t only accept used books, we also collect and resell used (or even new) artwork on our website Art for Books.
