Embroidery Guild Stitch-In

Cook the Book: Modern Comfort Food
Wednesday, August 4, 12-1pm. Cook the Book potlucks are back! Each month we choose a different cookbook. Stop by the library to select a recipe, make a free photocopy of the recipe, prepare the recipe at home, and then bring the finished dish to the potluck. It’s a great way to sample a new cookbook while only making one of the recipes! The book for August’s gathering is Modern Comfort Food by Ina Garten. Please pre-register at the library.
Dottie the Bookmobile!
Our bookmobile will be on the road this summer, visiting Williston and St. George neighborhoods, Allen Brook School, and the Isham Family Farm market. Dottie has materials for all ages, so visit any stop to see what's new. You can arrange to pick up holds, renew or get a library card, and grab a to-go craft when you visit (while supplies last). For routes & schedule, see here.
