It’s a convenient and invaluable reference hub for the many people who work at the Municipal Center. No need to hop into your car when the Municipal Reference Library (MRL) is so accessible on the second floor in suite 202. The MRL is an extension of the nationally-recognized Plano Public Library. Any time your attempts at researching topics yields one brick wall after another, contact MRL Librarian Bob Loftin for help gathering the professional and personal development materials you need. "I'm always available by phone or email (if not at the MRL desk) to help find any book or other item the library has in stock. The door is always open and everyone is welcome to go inside and use it," Bob says.
The MRL is also a great repository of Plano history. There are huge leather-bound journals of early City recorded ordinances and council minutes dating back to the late 1800s. The display case even houses historic photos that give you a true sense of Plano’s beginnings.
The MRL’s support services houses a software training lab to help you hone your computer skills, learn a foreign language or perfect your presentation abilities. You can read the latest magazines and national newspapers, order library books and movies (as you would at a main library branch) and keep up with the news from various industry and association publications.
Visit the Municipal Reference Library Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., or call 972-941-4428 for assistance.
