IFL Taster's Club: A Cook Book Club
Like with a book club, members meet to discuss a specific book, in this case a cookbook, and enjoy each other's company over coffee and snacks. Unlike with a book club, where the host is often in charge of providing much of the food and drink, meetings are a potluck meal; the dishes come from the cookbook in question. Members don't have to be serious, experienced cooks; enthusiasm for cooking is more important, so both experienced cooks and those who are just beginning to feel comfortable in the kitchen are invited to join.
Creative Writing Club
For anyone who wishes to write for fun, from blogs to poetry to memoirs to writing the great American novel, the library's writing club is for you. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 12 looking for a polace to create, learn, and share. Meetings are held at 7 PM on the last Monday of the month, last about an hour, and are informal, productive and fun. New members are always welcome, and perfect attendance is not required or expected. The club meeting are facilitated by Helen Taylor, who has published several short stories and has a background in English Education. For further information, please contact Helen.at the Front Desk, by phone 724-465-8841 Ext 5, or email to email@example.com
