Plymouth Garden Group Meeting
The Plymouth Garden Group will meet on Thursday, May 26th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Plymouth District Library in the Friends Room. Members will be hosting a perennial exchange and all interested gardeners are invited! The group focuses on native plants to benefit butterflies, bees and other pollinators so many of those will be offered along with other perennials. You do not need to bring a plant in order to take a plant! New members always welcome!

Don't forget - our digital materials are always available 24/7 - - Overdrive for e-books and e-audiobooks; Flipster for e-magazines and Hoopla for digital movies, e-audiobooks, music and e-books.
