Plumfield Children's Library

Plumfield Children's Library, a subset of Plumfield Children's Bookstore, is a private lending library located in Youngsville, North Carolina.

 

Our library carries the same type of wholesome children's literature that can be found in our online bookstore. 

While they are certainly engaging, the books in our collection are more than mere entertainment; they nourish a child's mind and heart. 

Each one is worth the time it takes to read.

 

We currently offer 1,400+ materials available for checkout, including:

• Books for ages 0-Teen

• DVDs

• Audiobooks

• Homeschool and Parenting resources

 

See our Library Catalog for a complete list of available titles:


Library Cards

Plumfield Children's Library cards are available for $25/year and include full access to the Plumfield Children's Library catalog.

A free Plumfield tote bag is also included for new members.

 

We do not restrict card availability based on a patron's town of residence;

if you are able to drive to Youngsville, NC to pick up and return your books, you are welcome to join us!

(If you are too far away to visit Plumfield, find a private library near you.)

 

Currently, Plumfield Children's Library is open only for porch pickup; cardholders can place holds using our online catalog.

Pickup hours are Thursdays, 10am-12pm (closed on major holidays), or by appointment.

Checked out items can be returned during those hours as well.
