McCabe Memorial Reading Garden to Receive Updates

Please excuse our dust while we put a fresh face on the McCabe Memorial Reading Garden located at the main entrance to the Plain City Public Library at 305 W Main St., Plain City.

To be installed this fall, the new landscaping plan allows for the removal of several trees that have become too crowded and have begun to damage the building, sidewalk, and drainage system. It will also freshen up the area with a focus on additional seating, thoughtful placement of vegetation with a focus on native plants, and an expanded irrigation system. A new library sign will also be installed, donated by the Friends of the Plain City Public Library with funds from the Della Selsor Trust.

Work will begin on the new reading garden the week of August 23, 2021. During construction the entrance to the library will be periodically inaccessible. Library patrons should watch for directional signage to a temporary entrance.

The Library is looking forward to the garden being completed in October for individuals, families, and small groups to use and enjoy. To learn more about the McCabe Memorial Reading garden, visit or call 614-873-4912.
