Sustainable Plymouth, South Shore & Cape Citizens Climate Lobby, the Plymouth Public Library and the League of Women Voters of the Plymouth Area are sponsoring a new series of sustainability workshops this summer.

All three will be at the Plymouth Public Library, 132 South St.

See cars from Toyota, Honda, Chevy, Volvo, Hyundai, Cadillac, and others. The Town of Plymouth will also show new EV vehicles from its fleet. At 1 p.m. there will be an EV workshop in the Fehlow Room. There you can learn about purchasing an EV, including state and federal incentives and the ins and outs of charging stations.
