About Plymouth Public Library Corporation Funded Initiatives
Private funding has resulted in increased public computer access and checkout system upgrades at the Main library brunch and Manomet brunch. In addition, the Library is able to provide the latest in technology to our patrons – from e-readers to downloadable books, movies, and music. Due to public demand, the Library now offers ‘Device Advice ‘ every Tuesday, designed to help patrons learn how to use the latest technology – from phones to iPads, tablets and e-readers.
Literacy for Life.
The Plymouth Public Librarys nationally recognized Adult Literacy Program is the ONLY adult Basic Education program in southeast Massachusetts that provides English as a Second Language, Adult Basic Ecucation, Computer Literacy, Life Skills and GED classes.

The mission is to provide adults in the greater Plymouth area the opportunity to develop and improve the life skills and literacy skills needed to achieve personal growth, to further their education, to seek better employment, and to benefit their overall quality of life.
Plymouth Public Library offers free classes for adults (age 16+) who are working towards passing the Hi-SET or GED to obtain a high school equivalency diploma. We also provide tutoring for adults learning English as a second language (ESOL). Our tutors are volunteers from the community who have completed our tutor training program.
