  • Join our Cookbook Club!

    Are you a food lover?
    A great cook?
    A terrible cook who wants to improve?

    Join our Cookbook Club! The first meeting is on Thursday, September 26th at 6 pm at the library.

    This is how it works: get a copy of the cookbook, choose a recipe, sign up, prepare your recipe for the night of the meeting and enjoy a potluck at the library!

    September's cookbook is Skinnytaste One and Done by Gina Homolka. We have a limited number of copies at the library and there are more available in the consortium. Call the library for more information or to register.
