From March 15th-May 14th, members of the Plymouth community are welcome to participate in Read Woke, a program designed to encourage reading outside of one’s own experiences. Selected books must either “challenge a social norm, give voice to the voiceless, provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised, seek to challenge the status quo, or have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group,” as established by Read Woke creator, Cicely Lewis.
All ages are welcome to register at https://plymouthlibraryma.beanstack.org/. Each completed book that is logged (up to 10) will earn you one raffle ticket entry for a gift card to a local Plymouth business. If you would like recommendations on books that meet the Read Woke criteria, please call Library Staff at 508-830-4250.
