Who We Are

The Friends of the Plainfield | Guilford Township Public Library is a group of people interested in books, our library and our community. We support and supplement library programs, with consideration to meeting the needs of the whole community.

What a difference a Friend makes!

Through volunteering and financial support, the Friends have made possible:

  • Programs for children, teens and adults
  • Support for the Summer Reading Club
  • Scholarships
  • Special celebrations such as the National Library Week after-hours event
  • The 100th Birthday Party for the library
  • The Plainfield Garden Tour
  • The purchase of supplies and equipment for the library

Did you know that, by law, the library is not permitted to purchase food? If you’ve ever enjoyed refreshments at a library event, you’ve experienced the Friends of the Library at work!
