Volunteering your time and skills at the Plymouth Public Library provides an enjoyable way to serve your community. Volunteers complement the library by assisting the staff with essential library operations. Call 508.830.4250 x222 or email Debbie D’Isabel for information.

At the Literacy Program

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!).

Tutors are always need for the ESL program. Learn more and sign up here.

Buy and Donate Books and Artwork



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. Most of these books come from donations made into the book bins.

Book bins

In the rear of the library’s parking lot, you will see these bins. Think of the library whenever you are purging your own library spaces or come upon books that haven’t got homes. We cull through these for recent titles in good condition for the book store and the rest go through a book-selling service that sends money back to us.


We don’t only accept used books, we also collect and resell used (or even new) artwork on our website Art for Books.
