It's end of the summer cooking time!

It's sometimes hard to cook for just a few people!!!!   August 9 at 1 pm come on over to the Library/Community Center and enjoy the program "Cooking for One or Two!"

The UWEX will be here to teach us how to convert recipes, make"planned-overs", and give us some grteat ideas on cooking smaller meals.

August 31, come to the "Cheap Eats" program, where we'll make ricotta cheese - yes - we'll make it right in the community center - then we'll use it to create lots of simple recipes, without a lot of expense, but with a ton of flavor!

Sherry Brownlow displays some of her collection of Wild Rose memorabilia and ephemera in the display case in the lobby of the Library/Community Center.

Over the years, Sherry has collected butter wrappers from the creamery, glasses and cups and other objet d' art - stop by and give them a look!

Mr. Kent's Storytime is on vacation until September!  We will be back then and Storytime will be held each wednesday at 10:30am.  We read books, sing songs, do fingerplays and have a lot of fun!  Although the storytimes are aimed at toddlers and pre-K kids, everyone is welcome!  There is no sign up required.  Please bring your child(ren) and help them get an early start on literacy by listening to books and by reading to them!
