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. The March theme is Super Soups.  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 and here, too!  Sample Days are great fun!  Follow us on Pinterest, too!
