Curbside Service Only
Our hours are the same but we are going to curbside service only to help keep our community safe.
Please call and we can bring your books to your car.
Thanks for understanding. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Welcome Angela Ogle!
We are happy to welcome Angela Ogle as our new Director of Cutler Memorial Library. Angela is a book lover and longtime library volunteer who comes to us from the boards of Cabot Public Library and the Cabot Historical Society and has dedicated much of her professional life to the service of books in libraries, bookstores, and in the book publishing world. She has many high falutin entries on her resume about managing inventories and negotiating sales of post-World War II art collections, but our favorites were 'weekly story time reading' at Cabot School and 'coordinating a kindergarten tea garden'. Sure, she can "archive visual holdings", but she can also build a fort out of willow branches.
Cutler's next chapter will be an exciting one, and we will be moving forward with our expansion plans as soon as conditions allow. Presently Cutler is committed to providing a welcoming and safe haven for our patrons during the coming winter months. We have implemented numerous changes to allow patrons to browse warmly and safely inside or to use curbside delivery for both books and high speed internet. And we have masks made by local volunteers available inside if you forgot yours!
Angela is so excited to get to know Plainfield and to learn more about its people and to help keep our little library as its original trustees intended, as "Plainfield's Living Room". We are so fortunate to have such a multifaceted new Director. We hope you will drop by soon to meet her and hear about Cutler's plans for the future.
We're open for browsing and call-ins.

*To connect to the wi-fi, your device needs to go through our "I-agree-to-your-rules 'gate'" page. Most devices automatically give you the log-in page (just hit the "I agree" button instead of logging in). But if you have trouble... turn off/close any programs that will automatically try to grab that signal before you've agreed to the rules such as Messenger, Drop Box, Facebook, etc. Or check if your Messenger app opened and is trying to link you to the "agree" page. Try opening a 2nd tab on your browser or entering a web address in the url field, if that doesn't work. You may have to disconnect and then try to reconnect if you had to close any open programs, to try again. You can call 871-0562 during reasonable hours and the librarian will help you troubleshoot if you are still stuck. It's OK to call!*
