Plymouth This week is National Library Week. It runs from April 13th through April 19th. One of the libraries participating is the Plymouth Public Library. The library will be celebrating with a “Canned Food for Fines” program. For each can of food you donate to the library, $1 will be taken off your fines.
All of the canned items will then be donated to the local food pantry at the Marshall County Neighborhood Center.
Even if you don’t have fines you can still participate. They will replace library cards at no charge and you can check out DVDs for free.
Folks at the library ask that all the cans that are donated have their labels on them, are not expired and they will not accept bottles, jars or boxes. They are looking for items high in protein as well as tuna, pasta sauce, beef stew, canned meals, fruit and juice.
In addition to collecting cans, the library is having its “Buck a Bag” sale. It’s where you can fill a plastic bag full of books and it will only cost you a dollar.
Also, Larita Killian will be in Plymouth on Wednesday. She will talk about her book, “Zimbabwe Bound: A Woman’s Journey Through Africa”.
That event will be held in the Conference Center of the Marshall County Historical Society Museum starting at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, April 16. Food and refreshments will be available. The book talk begins at 7 p.m. and is free.
