Owl Pen Pal Program for Teens
Plymouth District Library is partnering with Northville District Library to create a magical pen pal experience for local teens.

You write-a-letter-to-get-a-letter, so pick up your quill and parchment writing set at the library and get started.

After you write your letter to your new summer
pen pal, bring it to your library's Owl Mail Box for delivery.

More info on the Teen Page.  
Pride Books for Teens
Pride Books
Teens can celebrate PRIDE month with a free book to keep. Of course, all the books feature LGBTQIA+ characters and authors.

Come to the Help Desk (near the DVDs) anytime in June to select your book.

Or complete this form and we'll pick one out for you and put it on the hold shelf for you to pick up at curbside.
Introducing Sarah Perry, Youth Librarian 
Sarah Perry
We are pleased to introduce our new youth librarian, Sarah Perry. 

Sarah earned her library degree from Wayne State University with a specialization in children's services. Since then, she's done the Hokey Pokey with more storytime toddlers and led babies and their caregivers in more bounce rhymes than she can count.

Getting children excited about reading is one of her passions and Summer Reading is her all-time favorite library program.  

Sarah is excited to meet and work with the families in the Plymouth community. When you see her, be sure to say “hi” and let her know what your favorite book is.
