Plymouth Historical Society’s “Passport to Plymouth” Available at the Library

The Plymouth Historical Society has created a fun activity to celebrate Plymouth’s 225th Anniversary called “Passport to Plymouth”.

The Passport to Plymouth is available at the Terryville Public Library and Antiques at the Green, 703 Main Street, Plymouth. Library hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am – 5pm, and Tuesday and Thursday 1pm – 8pm.  Antiques at the Green store hours are Thursday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm.  The Passport is also available as a digital download for printing at home here.

The Passport to Plymouth brings you to 20 historic sites in Plymouth where you answer questions based on information found at that location. The question could be related to a sign, a gravestone, or an element or feature unique to that place.

Answer all the passport questions and, on Labor Day, September 5, 2020, there will be a Passport Party at the Lock Museum where your Passports will be stamped, there will be FREE ice cream, and tours of the Museum.

The Main Street Community Foundation awarded a grant to the Plymouth Historical Society for this fun activity.

Updated Directory of Local Preschool Programs Now Available for Families

2020 Preschool Directory

The Plymouth Early Childhood Council is pleased to present the updated Preschool Directory.  The information in this guide was obtained through a questionnaire sent to local preschools that serve Plymouth students. The information provided in this guide was supplied by representatives of each included preschool site.  The Plymouth Early Childhood Council does not promote or recommend any preschool or preschool program. We hope that this guide will be of assistance in helping you make an informed preschool choice.

Please call the individual preschools for further information.


The mission of the Early Childhood Council is to ensure that all of Plymouth’s children (ages birth to eight) are healthy, safe, and successful.

The Plymouth Early Childhood Council (website / Facebook) originally began as an informal network of early childhood education and care providers to network, brainstorm and collaborate, but has subsequently grown into a collaborative table of various community representatives who recognize the value of supporting and growing the early childhood education and care agenda in Plymouth.

Terryville Public Library Launches New Website

The Terryville Public Library has improved our website to make it easier for you to find and use Library resources.  The Library is grateful for the generous support of Main Street Community Foundation.  The website was last redesigned in 2008.  In 2019, they were awarded a $5,000 grant from the Bristol Brass General Grant Fund and the Betts Family Fund at the Main Street Community Foundation to support our website redesign project.

The Library conducted a focus group in Fall 2019 to ensure the new site would meet the public’s needs and expectations. The Library talked with users and non-users of the Library.  Most identified the need to improve access to library and community information, digital resources and media.

The new site provides better access to the Library’s collection of books and materials, programming and services for all ages, as well as librarian assistance. “The new site was designed to be flexible, intuitive and continue to evolve as patron needs change,” said Gretchen DelCegno, Terryville Library Director, which coordinated the project. She added that the new site works well with mobile devices, a feature that patrons have been asking for.
