Outreach in the Community

Outreach brings Library staff into the Plano community to share information about Library resources, with a special emphasis on non-users and under-served communities. Career development, early learning, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and senior learning opportunities are cornerstones of our commitment to lifelong learning for all.

Scheduling a visit from the Library outreach van for your organization or event provides participants the opportunity to meet Library staff, interact and learn about the resources and services available at the Library, and register for a Library card.
