Cold Nights, Cocoa and Cookies!

It’s getting to be that time of year when you want to curl up with a good book, have a warm cup of something and snack on some delicious cookies.  We have two new books at the library that may entice you to bake your own (which will also make the house smell delicious).

Book 1.

Book 2.

In this book not only will you see recipes for drop cookies, slice and bake, cookie bars and such, you will also learn how to make dough ahead and freeze it for those cookie emergencies.ENJOY!

NML Book Group: Cookbook Club

Come join the Nevins Library’s Cookbook Book Club every 3rd Tuesday evening of the month at 6:30pm in the Great Hall.  Check out a copy of the selected book(s) at the Main Desk, pick a recipe (email the title to Pat Graham to avoid duplicates) and prepare it for the program.  Over the year, we’ll explore regional fare, celebrity chefs, travel narratives and old mainstays and favorites. We’ll sample lots of great food, talk about what worked, what didn’t, and how to make it easier and healthier.

The book for the September 15th meeting, available for check out at the Main Desk, is Life From Scratch by Sasha Martin.

For more information, call Pat Graham at 978-686-4080 x16 or email
