The Plymouth District Library is truly one of our area’s treasure.  There are so many opportunities it affords to serve in the community, to learn or just to have fun.  Here are some upcoming (or ongoing) events that jumped out at me that looked particularly interesting

Call (734) 453-0750, Ext 240, to enroll or go to plymouthlibrary.org and complete the homebound delivery service registration.


The Plymouth District Library offers a wide variety of free computer classes – and is creating new classes all the time. Plymouth residency in the City of Plymouth or Plymouth Township is required for class participants. Registration is made through the Reader’s Advisory Desk, 734-453-0750, Ext. 4.


TEEN FAMILY GAME NIGHT, Wednesday, Dec. 30, 6:30 p.m. – Bring your friends and family members. Enjoy DDR and check out the new Wii system with Wii sports.

Thanks to Marti Erickson Chamberlain for allowing me to post photos she took of the outdoor set of Trust.  Those of you familiar with Plymouth will recognize this area as Penniman Street, just west of Harvey Street.
