PLAISTOW — The library continues to be open for curbside service only during our "new normal" schedule of Mon.-Fri., 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Tuesday until 6:00 p.m.) and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. No appointments are necessary; simply call us when you arrive to pick up materials.
We will be closed on Mon., January 18 for Martin Luther King Day.
SWAG: There is a limited supply of our 20th-anniversary library mugs ($10) and tote bags ($15) left. Just stop by with cash or a check for curbside service.
TRIVIA: On Fri., January 15 at 6:30 p.m., join us on Zoom for another battle of wits with the Haverhill Public Library, hosted by legendary local trivia DJ Stephen R. Wagner! Register to play on our website.
STORYTIME: Don't forget, every Friday morning at 10:00 a.m., Miss Jenn goes on Facebook Live for Story Time. Baby Bears is on Zoom on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m., and Toddler Time for 2-3 year-olds is on Zoom Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to tune in for the fun.
STORYWALK: Our 18-station story walk right now features "Tracks in the Snow," so even when the library is closed, you can treat yourself to a great children's story with the kids -- and make your own tracks in the snow. (We'll be checking for fresh tracks!)

BLOOD DRIVE: In 2020, Plaistow Public Library hosted all seven of our scheduled blood drives, plus an extra drive due to emergency shortages.

Pre-register at RedCrossBlood.org to donate blood at our drives on January 26.
