Summer Discovery is underway at the Plymouth Public Library and multiple arts and crafts events are being held for the public. Between June 1st and July 17th there are many opportunities for you to come to the library and create something “out-of-this-world” to go along with the Summer Discovery theme of “A Universe of Stories.” The events will be held in The Makerspace and are free to the public. Sign up may be required depending on the event; see the calendar at PPL’s new website (www.myplymouthlibrary.org).
Angi Resendez, Marketing Department Supervisor at PPL, is teaching multiple Assemble events in June and July. The events include: June 13th at 6:00 p.m. a Galaxy Dreamcatcher; June 20th at 6:00 p.m. a Planet Mobile and June 27th at 6:00 p.m. a Galaxy Sharpie Art. July 18th brings a Glow in the Dark Constellation event at 6:00p.m. “The PPL Makerspace is excited to provide our community with ways to explore their artistic creativity. We hope that we can offer a little of something for everyone and that the events continue to grow in the future.” said Resendez.
Library clerk Calvin Hopple is leading two of the Assemble events on Thursdays at PPL. “On July 11th, at 6:00 p.m. we will have a class where patrons can create constellation cards.” said Hopple. “This is a fun and easy event with step-by-step instructions for patrons to follow. All materials will be provided, which is also the case for the class we will be having on July 25th at 6:00 p.m. where patrons can make Chinese constellation lamps.”
PPL will be participating in Downtown Plymouth’s “Art in the Street” event on June 22nd. Stacy Prather, Adult Events Coordinator at PPL, is teaming up with Sherwood for the event. “We will be bringing our Book Bike from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and we are really looking forward to seeing new faces while we work together with the public on a collaborative art piece featuring PPL’s new logo” said Prather.
Just Artin’ Around, an art event led by library clerk Connor Sherwood, will be held the first Saturday of July. New events have been added to Tuesday nights as well. “There will be an acrylic bird painting class on Tuesday, June 25th at 5:30 p.m., and there will be an acrylic sponge class on July 9th, along with a chalk pastel class on July 23rd. “Acrylic paint and chalk have been our most popular events, which is why we have decided to add more events featuring them, in the hopes that more people can come out and attend.” said Sherwood.
