Open for Browsing at 50% Occupancy

The Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library is still open for browsing! Staff members continue taking precautions to keep patrons safe, such as wearing face shields and disinfecting surfaces and equipment frequently. Returned materials go into quarantine for 72 hours before going back into circulation.

On July 4th, Governor Holcomb added stage 4.5 to the Back on Track plan for Indiana. Click here to read more about this plan and any changes.
