Tree Health10 Common Tree Problems and What to Do About Them!
Monday, March 18 at 7:00pm

Recognizing common tree health concerns when you spot them in your yard and providing the appropriate care early can help prevent small problems from becoming big ones that cost you a valuable, mature tree on your property.  Regular observation starting this Spring, combined with the judicious use of pesticides, fertilizer, “tree surger” and careful tree preservation, can help your trees live a long and healthy life.  An ISA Certified Arborist and Michigan Registered Forester will discuss common tree concerns in Plymouth, from oak wilt to tarspot to trunk decay and more, and how they’re best tackled successfully.

Everyone’s Reading…Kiss Carlo

kisscarlo

The library is participating in Everyone’s Reading, the one-book community reading program sponsored by several Metro Detroit public libraries in Oakland and Wayne counties. Everyone’s Reading promotes public dialogue through the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book with friends, neighbors, and other members of our community.

This year’s selection is Kiss Carlo by best-selling author Adriana Trigiani. Trigiani is the author of the very popular Big Stone Gap and Valentine series, along with other best-selling novels including Lucia, Lucia and The Shoemaker’s Wife. Kiss Carlo (2017) is the story of the Palazzinis, a boisterous Italian clan led by feuding brothers Dominic and Mike, set in post-WWII South Philadelphia. Trigiani uses themes from Shakespeare’s plays to craft a world of engaging characters in this sprawling comedy/drama filled with romance, buried secrets, and mistaken identities.

PARTICIPATE by reading the book and joining the book discussions at the Library: Brown Bag Books will meet on Wednesday, trigianiMarch 27 at noon, and the Contemporary Books Group will meet on Tuesday, March 12 at 7:30 pm to discuss the book. No registration is needed. Copies of Kiss Carlowill be available at the Library.

MEET THE AUTHOR:
Adriana Trigiani will speak on Tuesday, April 2 at 7pm at Temple Beth El, 7500 Telegraph Rd, Bloomfield Township and Wednesday,  April 3 at 7pm at Adat Shalom Synagogue,  29901 Middlebelt Rd, Farmington Hills. Tickets are free, but limited – stop in for your tickets now.

American Creed: Community Conversations

American CreedAmerican Creed is a documentary that discusses what ideals shape the United States, and how to define our national identity through a set of unifying beliefs – an “American creed.” In the film, Condoleezza Rice and David Kennedy ask a diverse group of Americans what it means to be American, and whether an “American creed” can unite us. 

The Plymouth District Library is thrilled to be a part of this project, which is funded by the American Library Association’s Office for Public Programming. We invite the community to participate in three events related to this important film:
