It has been brought to our attention that some residents may have or will receive Fundraising Drive Appeal Requests in the mail claiming to benefit the Plymouth Area. These requests have not been sent out on behalf of the Plymouth Police Department and do not benefit our public servants directly.
Requests of this nature have been known to be sent out on behalf of Police, Fire, and EMS Departments. Fundraising requests benefiting our hometown police and emergency responders will be clearly identified using the organization's official name and department logo(s). Please be cautious when responding to requests of this nature and ensure that they are coming from one of our local public service organizations.

Covid-19 Update from the Plymouth Public Library
We are delighted to inform friends and patrons that OUR DOORS ARE OPEN, and we are once again pleased to offer you the opportunity to browse in the library.
We do ask that friends and patrons continue to maintain social distance while wearing their masks. We ask that you please stay home if you are not feeling well.
Patrons may come into the library to browse. They may check out books and materials at the circulation desk with our wonderful staff members. We ask that patrons please stay behind the partitions located at each station at the circulation desk.
We ask that patrons limit their browsing visits to 30 minutes. This will allow our incredibly small staff to assist them in a timely manner, while still having time to complete all the “behind the scenes” work that we need to do each day.
We will continue with computer usage by appointment. Patrons are asked to make appointments by calling 570 779 4775. Appointments are 45 minutes in length. Only 3 computers are available in order to maintain social distance at this time.
A patron may use a public computer one time if they do not have a library card. They must sign up for a library card if they wish to use a public computer again. Library cards are free and can be used at any library in Luzerne County.
Copies, Prints, and Faxes:
Patrons may enter the library to have copies made and faxes sent. We ask that patrons make an appointment if they wish to use the public computers for printing. Black and white copies and prints are twenty-five cents per page. Colored prints and faxes are one dollar per page.
