Reading Rainforest

The newly renovated Plainfield Public Library’s Children’s Library, “the Reading Rainforest”, is our gift to the children of Plainfield.  Featuring a rainforest mural, new computers, a media center, puppet theater and a special area for tweens, the space emphasizes today’s environmental issues while paying  tribute to the multiculturalism that is Plainfield.

Schools, Camps, etc. MUST call ahead to make arrangements for groups of more than 10 children.
