Plano Library 5

Getting to Know the Plano Libraries {Classes and Programs}

We are so lucky to have an amazing library system here in Plano. Did you know some local suburbs around us only have 1 library?? I bet there are some other fun facts about the Plano libraries you might not know as well. Come learn more and get to know the Plano Libraries.

The Plano Public library system has 5 great locations: Davis, Haggard, Harrington, Parr, and Schimelpfenig. To find out more about each location and address check out the Plano Library website.

There are SO MANY amazing materials, services, and features here that the casual library patron who just pops in for a book or storytime now and then might not be aware of.  Plano Public Library has lots to offer to moms of young children both in the buildings and on the go.

Let’s check out some of these amazing programs and classes offered and find one that works for you and your schedule!

Young Kids Plano Library Fun:

There 38 “Reading Readiness Storytime” sessions each week that are targeted to different ages and use different formats and skills at these locations.  I’ve always taken mine to library story time- it’s so much fun! These dates and times are listed on the website as there are so many to choose from. Be sure to check those out. Here are some other classes/programs offered for the younger aged kids.

  • Play and Learn: Playing is learning! Toddlers explore and connect in this unstructured and imaginative playtime. Parent/Caregiver participation is required. Ages 18-36 months
