The Terryville Library is a public library serving the Town of Plymouth, which includes the villages of Terryville and Pequabuck. The beginning of the Terryville Library dates back to 1839, during the Presidency of Martin Van Buren, when thirty citizens of the Town of Plymouth organized a private subscription library. The
Vision of the Terryville Public Library is to significantly improve the lives of our community.

Anyone driving through the area will notice the gorgeous stone houses, church, and round porches scattered among the farmhouses of this historic town.

The Mission of the Terryville Library is to be a dynamic hub supporting the process of learning through knowledge, conversation and community. The library has a long list of values! http://www.terryvillepl.info/TPLmission%20and%20goal%202014%20(3).pdf
