The Shiff Garden

In 1991 the “new” Plymouth Public Library opened its doors to a spacious, beautiful interior and a large walled garden space at the back of the library.  A generous memorial gift dedicated by the Richard Shiff estate gave the space a name and a lovely granite bench. 
Many events have taken place in the Shiff Garden from story times to art shows, to Foundation appreciation dinners. During these many years the “ garden” had few plants and no shade.
In the near future, with help from our friends, Plymouth Public Library Foundation will be sprucing up the garden so patrons can enjoy reading, studying, meeting and relaxing with friends on benches under shade trees and surrounded by the colorful flowers. 


The Garden Today

The garden is usually much greener; these photos were taken during the 2022 drought.
