Stay-at-home orders may still be in effect in Indiana, but citizens are thankfully allowed to get outside and exercise as long as they follow social distancing protocols. PPL is offering the community multiple stories and learning opportunities should they wish to stretch their legs and take a walk around town.
The newest offering is a “Stroll Around the Block” at the library!
Posted in the library windows are short stories that you can read while out on a stroll. Poems are located at the south entrance windows and stories fill the north and northeast meeting room windows.
“Stroll Around the Block” stories are updated every two weeks, with the newest stories being added to the windows on Friday, April 17th.
When you’re finished enjoying a “Stroll Around the Block” at the library, head south on Center street to Plymouth’s Pollinator Garden (a Discover Plymouth Project), located across from the fire department. Children of all ages can run around the small corner park while learning about bees! Educational signs are posted within the Pollinator Garden about bees, including a descriptive sign about the “Mason Bee Hotel” that is in use at the back corner of the garden.
If you can’t make it downtown, stop by Centennial Park and enjoy the StoryWalk!
The Plymouth Education Association is currently sponsoring April’s story – “Titanicat” by Marty Crisp. April is the anniversary month of the fateful passenger ship, and this cute tale about the Titanic’s “lucky cat” and her caretaker is sure to win over readers of any age as they progress through the park along the nature trail.
The StoryWalk begins at the Amphitheater and continues south along the nature trail, ending near the pedestrian bridge across from the circle drive at Plymouth High School.
Books featured in the StoryWalk change monthly, with the next book being added in May. Any person or entity that wishes to sponsor a StoryWalk story can contact Deb Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org – stories are $100 each to sponsor.
Enjoy the weather when you can, stretch your legs often, and keep practicing social distancing! We’re all in this together.
