Wise Guy and His Gal at library

The Plymouth Public Library will host performers over the summer as part of the Summer Library Program. The next performance at the library will be a fun-filled variety show by Wise Guy and His Gal.

Join us to explore the world of reading through acting, singing, dancing, puppets, audience participation, and lots of comedy. Wise Guy and His Gal will be at the library Wednesday, July 24, with shows at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

If you have not already done so, there is still time to register for the Summer Library Program. Kids, teens, and adults can sign up and earn prizes for the reading they do this summer. Please stop in at the library to register or get more information on this program.

Do you have a super-reader at home who has already finished their reading booklet? If so, come back to the library to pick up an Extra Challenge sheet.

The Extra Challenge involves completing 10 reading-related tasks, including making a recipe from a cookbook and listening to an audio book. When all the tasks are completed, your child can come to the library to receive a free book.
