Book Clubs for Adults

Cookbook Club


Do you enjoy cooking and love good food? If so, join our new Cookbook Club! This is a combination of a book club and a potluck dinner. Each month, we will choose a cookbook by a popular food author from which each of the participants will select a recipe and prepare it for the group to taste. We are looking to hold nice discussions and enjoy good food and company! If you are a food enthusiast, please register early as the number of participants is limited.

This club meets once a month on Tuesdays at 7pm on the 3rd floor rear arc. Copies of the book are available for registered participants at the Circulation Desk. You don’t need to attend each month, so come when you can! For questions, email Debbie at dpercher@minlib.net.
