Schools & Teachers

At Plymouth District Library, we are your partners in education. Our resources are here to support learning.

Field Trips & Class Visits

If you want your class to come to the library, let us know in advance so we can plan for your visit. Depending on your goals for the trip, library staff can prepare activities to help your students feel better prepared to make use of the learning resources available through the library. You can take a guided tour, listen to stories, checkout books, or more.

Library staff can also come to your classroom to support your curriculum– through book talks, storytelling, research tutorials, and more. Submit a request below at least two weeks in advance so we can schedule a staff member to join your class.

Exam Proctoring

Plymouth District Library offers proctoring services at no cost for Plymouth cardholders who are students of accredited colleges and universities. Proctoring is done by appointment only. Please allow at least 48 hours notice for proctoring requests. Exams are proctored on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and select Fridays and Saturdays. There is a 2 hour limit to exams proctored at the library.

Library Cards
