Cooking the Books Book Club
Monday, September 18th
The Board Room
It's a fresh kind of book club! Check out any cookbook of your choice from our collection. Make
one or more of the recipes and bring your book and food to our potluck
meeting. Sample the foods others have made and join in the discussion
of the cookbooks. Did you like your book? Were there many good recipes?
Directions easy to follow? If your nightly menu is on auto repeat then this is a great way to become re-energized about cooking.

hashtag and hiding it around the community for others to find. This
event is intended for adults, but older children may also attend.

Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day 2016
On Tuesday, October 11th, libraries around Wyoming took photos
and gathered testimonials of people enjoying their resources. Wyoming
Libraries Snapshot Day allows libraries all across the state to
show the tremendous impact that they have on the lives of Wyoming
residents. Statistics and figures are great for reports, but your
stories and photos better illustrate "a day in the life"
of a library and help decision makers understand how valuable libraries
are to their communities. See a few of the pictures we captured
of Pinedale Library patrons using their library!
