Artisan Craft Fair
Friday, November 6

The library will be transformed into a festive marketplace with art and craft vendors, a hotdog stand, mini book sale, local author table, intuitive readings, silent auction and jewelry table.  The artists and crafters will be selling fibercrafts, pressed flowers, woodworking, paintings, pottery, jewelry and more. This will be a great spot to get local gifts for the holidays!

There are still a few tables left for artists and crafters. Tables are $20 for 8 feet and $17 for 5 feet.  Application forms are available at the library. Like last year, the library will have a used jewelry table with all sales going to the library. Please keep the library in mind if you are doing fall cleaning in your jewelry collection.

Cook The Book Club
Tuesday, November 10

Come to the first meeting of this new and fun group! 

It will be held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 5:30 to 6:30. A 'chosen' cookbook will be kept at the main desk. Come in, browse through the book and pick a recipe from the book.

We will photocopy that recipe for you and then mark it as 'chosen' so the next person can pick something else.

Then, on November 3, you bring your cooked recipe, along with your own plate, cup, bowl, flatware, placemat, napkin and whatever service utensils needed for your dish.

Participants will sample all dishes and then discuss the book, author, recipe and style of book!! At the end, we will then choose the cookbook for the next month.

Sounds fun doesn't it?? Call Dawn to sign up or better yet, stop by to browse through our first cookbook " Comfort Foods: Scrumptious Classics Made Easy."
