Cook the Book Returns!

Cook the Book is returning to the Vermillion Public Library!

Do you love browsing through cookbooks or trying new recipes and cooking techniques? The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is pleased to resume our most popular book club – Cook the Book! On Mondays at noon, beginning on January 22nd and continuing through February 26th, 2018, our tastiest adult program will introduce fellow foodies to new tastes, cooking techniques, and great books about cooking.

This unique book group brings together patrons who love to cook for a shared meal and conversation about cooking. To participate, drop by the Library Circulation desk before January 22nd and pick up a book from our pre-selected assortment of cookbooks. Participants will choose recipes inspired by their chosen books to prepare and share for the first meeting. It will only be necessary to make one regular-sized recipe – no need for doubling! Subsequent meetings will be themed according to the group’s choices.

For more information, drop by the Library Circulation Desk, or call us at 605.677.7060.

Are you still writing?

We’re only half-way through NaNoWriMo, friends – you can do it!
Don’t forget our prize package: anyone checking in at the VPL, or posting pics of themselves writing at the VPL, during the month of November will be entered to win a writer’s prize pack which includes 2 beautiful blank journals donated by Pressing Matters, a $5 gift certificate for The Bean, and ‘A Book that Takes its Time’, by Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. Every November, thousands of writers around the world congregate at Come Write In spaces to pursue their creative dreams and write the first draft of their novel. What better place to settle into the creative task than in one of our comfy chairs in front of the fireplace? You can even bring your latte.

Want to Work for Us?

We are looking for a new Public Relations & Programming Specialist, and it could be you! First review of applications begins November 22nd; position open until filled. For more information, view the job description below, or give us a call at the library – 677-7060.
