The Kid’s Homeschool Book Club will meet 2 p.m.  Wednesday. Led by Children’s Librarian Libby McWhorter, this book club is designed for children ages 5-8 and features a book discussion and trivia activities.

Cookbook Club

On Thursday, at 6 p.m. the library will host the Cookbook Club. The club is a discussion group that will explore the library’s large collection of cookbooks. Participants will make and share different recipes with the club. They’ll hear what others liked about the cookbook and the recipe they tried, as well as taste-test samples and discover new recipes. Each month will feature a theme.

In February, the theme is Comfort Food. For more information or to register, contact Julia Basil at the library. Registration is required.
