Plainville Public Library

The Plainville Public Library helps taxpayers save money in a number of different ways. By using the library and taking advantage of the free resources and information, the residents of Plainville help their own pocketbooks. They don’t have to pay to borrow print books or to download e-books or audiobooks to their mobile devices. They don’t have to pay to borrow a DVD or music CD. From the comfort of their own home, they can go online and access the Library’s various databases for up-to-the-minute information. Yet for those in our community who don’t own a computer, the Library saves them money by providing free public computer access.

The Plainville Public Library hosts many events and workshops for children of all ages that can be registered for even if you are not a resident of Plainville.

Southington Public Library

The Southington Public Library has more than just books. You can also check out videos, CDs, games, backpacks of educational materials, shaped cake pans and more.
The Children's department has a puppet theater, computers with educational programs, train table, blocks and other toys.
Their children's programs are free to attend; though the more popular programs do require you to sign up beforehand and to put down a refundable deposit (which you get back when you attend the program! It just saves your spot!).
Programs are promoted at the Children's circulation desk and on their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/SouthingtonKidsPlace/ (but not on the Library's Calendar of Events).
