The Plain City Public Library is also a member of the Central Library Consortium in which the Adult Services Librarian would be an active participant.
Our library’s mission is to provide resources to enhance the quality and enjoyment of life; to do so the Plain City Public Library believes in:
- Being excellent communicators; thriving in a flexible environment that values health, family and respect for one another
- Ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for personalized attention without discrimination
