Cookbook Book Club!

Cookbook and Wooden Spoon

Do you love to cook? Do you love to eat what you cook? Then the Friends of the Bill Memorial Library are kicking off a brand new book group for you! The First meeting of the Cookbook Book Club will take place on Thursday, October 13th at 6:00pm. Participants will prepare the recipe that they picked up at the Library at the September kickoff and bring it to share. We will discuss the dishes, the books that inspired them, and more! Childcare will be available on a limited basis. Please contact the library to inquire.

Haven't picked up your recipe yet? Recipes will be available for selection at the Bill Memorial Library for the month of September. Stop in to sign up and pick out a dish to prepare. For more information about the cookbook book club, check out our flyer here.

The Friends of the Bill Memorial Library are dedicated volunteers who strive to make the Bill Memorial Library the best it can be. If you are interested in becoming more involved with the Friends, check out their webpage here.
