Over the last few months the PPL has undergone a refurbishment to many of its rooms. Electrical contractors have rewired the whole building from top to bottom and updated our fire protection systems. So if you have not been to see us recently why not pop along and see the changes for yourself.
You may have also noticed that we have given our website a bit of a makeover as well including a new website address www.thePPL.org.uk a lot shorter to type than the Plymouth Proprietary Library and easier to remember!!
On the first Monday of the month the Book Club meets between 2.00pm and 3.00pm when members get a chance to read an discuss last months set book. Next month we shall be tackling 'Longbourn' by Jo Baker.
Next Meeting 2nd February @ 2.00pm
New members always welcome.
"It is wash-day for the housemaids at Longbourn House, and Sarah's hands are chapped and bleeding. Domestic life below stairs, ruled tenderly and forcefully by Mrs Hill the housekeeper, is about to be disturbed by the arrival of a new footman smelling of the sea, and bearing secrets."
Calling all romantics!

Work continues on our project to produce an online catalogue of all the books in the library using 'The Library Thing'. With the help from the Heritage Lottery Fund, students from Plymouth University are working at the library now to catalogue our books. Click Here to see the progress we have made so far. We are also looking at increasing the number of different way that books can be searched for but more on this soon.
