SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library has cookbooks for patrons to borrow.
More dark hours inside is more time to experiment with recipes. The library doors are open to browse for books, including many cookbooks. People also may call to request curbside pickup to avoid coming in. Either way, an Evergreen library card is a great way to try a new author or idea.
WorkOne is at the library on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 1-4:30 p.m. and in Syracuse on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
The library is closed Tuesday, Nov. 17, as staff will be watching the Indiana Library Federation Annual Conference virtually.
The library is also closed Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27, for Thanksgiving. The library will reopen at regular hours at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 28.
The last homeschool activities are on Friday, Nov. 20, at 10:30 a.m. Meetings for homeschoolers and story times will resume in January.
Jackie Franks from Purdue Extension is presenting a class about using an electronic pressure cooker to quickly prepare meals and treats. She teaches about food safety while cooking with the Instant Pot. Please call the library to check about class availability at 574-457-3022.
An in-person discussion on the book “Circe” is 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1. An online forum will post comments from the group.
“Circe” was a surprise of a book because not many books written about Greek mythology grab the attention of so many. Madeline Miller’s book was awarded the Goodreads Best Fantasy for 2018 and American Booksellers Audiobook of the Year and selected as best book of the year by BuzzFeed, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Time Magazine, the Times Literary supplement and The Washington Post.
Circe is banished to a lonely island where many pass through her place of exile: the messenger Hermes, the craftsman Daedalus, a ship with a golden fleece and Odysseus on his epic voyage home. Copies of the book are available for anyone to check out.
