Preserving Plainville’s Past

The Plainville Public Library, the Plainville Historical Commission, and the SAILS Library Network have collaborated to create a collection of  photographs of Plainville and its residents for the SAILS Digital History Collection.  The Library and the Historical Society have held scanning parties at the library.  Plainville residents who wanted to share their family history brought photographs  to the library for scanning.   The scanned images were transmitted to the  SAILS Library Network where detailed descriptions were added. The images and descriptions then uploaded into the SAILS Digital History Collection. These images are now available on that website as well as  on the Massachusetts Digital Commonwealth and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) websites. View the Preserving Plainville's Past online exhibit.  

New Library Space!

Congratulations to Cardinal Spellman on their new library. The design makes great use of an unused space and is now a modern, high school library. IMG_20160229_123727
