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. August is Pickled and Fermented!  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 and second Sample Days were great successes!  Follow us on Pinterest or look for our link to recipes coming soon!

Labor Day Closure

The library will be closed in observance of Labor Day on Monday, September 5th.  Regular hours will resume on Tuesday at 10am.
