Do you like to cook? Do you enjoy sampling different dishes and trying new recipes? You don’t normally think of libraries as a place for foodies to gather, but the North Webster Community Public Library has a group especially for the culinarily-inclined.
The Revolving Recipe Round-Up is a group of foodies who meet at 6 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Library. Each month the group focuses on a different type of food and everyone prepares a dish to share, along with its recipe. The library provides the serving and eating utensils along with coffee. It’s a fun way to swap recipes, pick up cooking tips, and make new friends.
In addition, the library offers a large assortment of books about cooking techniques, ethnic foods, nutrition, meal planning, food budget tips, cookbooks, and many other food-related topics. The next Revolving Recipe Round-Up meets Tuesday, Nov. 27, and will focus on casseroles, so save the date and bring your favorite casserole to share.
Now that the weather is turning colder, you may be looking for interesting indoor activities for the long winter months ahead. In addition to Revolving Recipe Round-Up, the library offers numerous monthly programs as well as numerous special events throughout the year.
Writer’s Corner enables those who enjoy writing to share ideas and develop their talents. Whether you’re a novice or a published author, you’re invited to meet at 10 a.m. the third Monday of each month – next meeting is Nov. 19 – to encourage and learn from each other.
The READ Book Club also meets monthly on the third Monday of each month. The next meeting is at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 19. The club reads and discusses a selected book at each meeting.
If you prefer choosing your own book, the Voyager Book Club allows you to choose any book within an assigned genre. The Voyager Book Club gets together at 10 a.m. the fourth Monday every month with the next gathering to be Nov. 26.
If you’re more of a “hands-on” type person, the First Tuesday Euchre Club and Make and Take Card Class might be more to your liking. Engage in a friendly match of round robin Euchre on the first Tuesday of each month at 5:15 p.m. or create your own original greeting cards at the monthly Make and Take Card class at 10 a.m. on the first Thursday.
Monthly teen events take place at 5:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. For this month’s event on Nov. 15, the teens will be reading short novels they’ve written in recognition of National Novel Month while enjoying snacks and playing author trivia.
The Youth Services Department also sponsors monthly Family Movie Times with free popcorn, usually on the fourth Thursday at 5 p.m.
In addition to the library’s regular monthly programming, special classes and events take place throughout the year. The Mystery Marathon Reading Contest begins Nov. 17 and runs through Dec. 15 in which readers compete to read the most mysteries and win a prize.
Stop by the library for contest details and to sign-up to get started. Also check out monthly programs and stop by often to learn about upcoming special events. And, of course, there’s a wealth of reading materials, movies, and online resources to serve every interest. The library is a great place to learn, stay connected and have fun.
