Join the Library Recipe Club!

  • Bring your recipes to exchange with other foodies.  
  • Bring samples to share on the 2nd Thursday of each month at Sample Day, during the monthly Coffee with a Cop event.  

Your recipe could end up in a community cookbook someday!  Each month will be a different theme.  May is muffins!  June will be Flavorful Fruit!  Drop off a recipe to share and pick up a new one from one of your community members' favorites.  We will take pictures of the samples and put it with the recipe on our new Pinterest page!  Our first Sample Day was a great success!
