This health literacy initiative will begin the week of August 20 with 1-hour discussion sessions to take place about the book selected to read during each two-week period. There will be online bi-weekly challenges to test your health literacy and prize drawings (worth $50) at every meeting! Participants that sign up two weeks in advance at the Plymouth Public Library for each topic will also be awarded their own copy of the book that will be discussed for the selected topic. A limit of 10 books for each health literacy topic (6 topics to total 60 books) will be awarded, so make sure to stop by our office soon!

Our health literacy program has moved to being interactive on our Instagram page. Please visit us on Instagram to learn more and interact with us. (Updated October 15, 2018)
