YOUNGSTOWN—The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC) Poland Branch will fully reopen to the public on Monday, August 14.
The Library has been open in a limited capacity on the ground floor since May 1, while the 10,000 square foot space upstairs was closed to receive new carpet, paint, and a refreshed and updated look. The Library’s skilled maintenance craftsmen did much of the work themselves in order to keep costs down. The building originally opened to the public in 2001.
The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC) has served the Mahoning Valley since 1880 when the Youngstown Library Association was officially created. With 15 branches across Mahoning County, including our Main Library in downtown Youngstown, the PLYMC is well known for signature services and programs like Summer Discovery and 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. The mission and values of PLYMC to “connect, inspire, and enrich” position the Library to serve our communities by preparing children for kindergarten, promoting early literacy, assisting job seekers, connecting Valley residents to technology, and providing resources for small businesses.
