Located directly above the Co-op is the Plainfield Community Center, with openings for classes/workshops and events, public and private. The large, well-lit room upstairs doubles as an art gallery space and, while lacking in handicap access, can accommodate most small functions. We provide wall mirrors, chairs, and a few tables, in addition to the odd podium or puppet theatre. Scheduled users should feel free to make use of the Rinnai heater, if the weather demands it, and a sink is also immediately available. There is also a baby grand piano for (gentle) public use and you are welcome to play when the space is unoccupied.
We now require anyone using the space to sign out the Community Center key. It is still available to the community, but we ask for a name and phone number for the safety and security of our employees and the Community Center space.
The Plainfield Community Center serves as a bridge to further the relationship between the Plainfield Co-op, its members, and the larger community. It provides a community space and encourages diverse activities and events.
