The future is coming!

Very soon, the Library's strategic planning team will be sending out a survey to Plaistow residents.

What kind of library do you want for the future? What mix of old & new services would be best for our community not only today, but in 2022?

Start thinking about the possibilities and watch for the survey, because these days public libraries are a lot more than just books!

We're delighted to announced the addition of a second day & time for our Gentle Yoga program.

Sybil's Friday morning classes at 10 am will now be joined by classes on Tuesdays at 9:15 am.

Classes are for all ages and abilities and will run through the end of August.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Plaistow Public Library. Please support this wonderful program with a suggested donation of $5 per class.


The Plaistow Public Library has a Wi-Fi Hotspot for loan to library card holders.  Take the internet with you wherever you go with a Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The Wi-Fi Hotspot is about the size of a deck of cards and can link up to 15 devices to the internet at the same time. The Wi-Fi Hotspot is portable and simple to use.

The Hotspot connects to T-Mobile’s cellular network, and by connecting your phone, tablet, or other wireless-enabled device to it, you can get online anywhere in T-Mobile’s coverage area – at home, in the car, or at the park.

In order to borrow the Hotspot, stop by the Plaistow Public Library with your library card.
  • The Hotspot may be borrowed only by Plaistow Library cardholders in good standing (no fines or billed items, and up-to-date contact information).
  • The Hotspot may be borrowed for a 1-week period. It may be renewed twice, but ONLY if no other patron is waiting for it.
  • The borrower is responsible for any loss or damage to the Hotspot. Replacement costs of up to $126 will be charged if the Hotspot or its components are returned with damage that renders it inoperable, or if they are not returned within 7 days of the due date.
Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring our Hotspot!
