NEW at the library, at the request of a community member, we have added a jigsaw puzzle exchange.
Bring in a puzzle from home and trade it with one here. Or just borrow one and bring it back when you’re done with it.
Donations of puzzles is greatly appreciated — just drop them off on the puzzle exchange shelves, which can be found near the new books in the upstairs of the library.
Join us on the first Monday of each month as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.
Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home. Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe. If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone. We will make and share a different kind of food each month, starting with “Soups, Stews and Chilis” on November 6.
