    Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes?  Do you enjoy sampling new dishes?  Then grab your apron and join the Library’s new Food for Thought Cookbook Club!

    We pick the cookbook, you select and make a recipe at home, then bring it in to share. We will discuss the book, the cooking process, what you liked or didn’t like about the recipe, all while enjoying food out on our beautiful new patio!  Registration in advance is required because space is limited.  Please let us know what you are bringing ahead of time, so that recipes are not repeated.  Call 986-1047, ext. 5 to register, and plan on bringing a friend to share the delicious food with us!

    This month's selection is Marcus Samuelsson's The Red Rooster Cookbook.  Copies of the cookbook available at the Library.

    In his newest popular history, West Like Lightning: The Brief Legendary Ride of the Pony Express, New York Times bestselling author Jim DeFelice, a local resident, recreates the sweeping drama of the American frontier's most audacious enterprise: the legendary Pony Express.  A meticulous researcher, DeFelice drove the entire, nearly two thousand mile stretch of the original Pony Express trail from Sacramento, California to St. Joseph, Missouri in 2016. Along the way, he talked with museum curators, local historians, and historical reenactors of the Pony Express Association, and tracked down original documents to convey the full scope of the historic enterprise against the wider background of the U.S. Postal Service, American finance, the Gold Rush, and the impending Civil War.
