The Platt Memorial Library was built by Dr. Mary Platt as a memorial to her late husband, Dr. William Platt, in 1906, and is owned by the Town. It has been an integral art of the community for over 100 years. The Library is governed by an elected Board of Directors. To carry the Libray forward another 100 years (at least), a number of community members have organized as “Friends of the Platt, Inc,” a 501(c)3 non-profit committed originally organized to raise funds for the Library's building expansion. With the addition of the new wing, the Friends focus on funds for programs. Visit their site for information about any current fund-raising opportunities they are engaged in.
The Platt offers various programs thoughout the year aimed at both the younger set and adults. Children's programs include pre-schoolers as well as K-6, and Teens. Adults enjoy monthly reading groups. In addition, the Platt organizes special programs periodically. Details are on the Library website.
