What's Cooking?: Thanksgiving

The autumn holidays are here!  Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  It is a special time to gather with families and friends around the table.  With the blustery fall weather, there is nothing like the comforting aroma of a steamy pot of soup or stew braising on the stove, or meat and root vegetables roasting in the oven.  I can still remember my dad's pork & shrimp wonton dumplings in a hot clear broth and how it took the chill out from the cold.  Soups are great comfort foods.

Short term pain...long term gain

New Steps at the New City Library If you have been to the library in recent weeks you know we are getting new front steps. The Library needed to close its front doors in order to complete this project in a timely manner.    Both doors are now open.   The steps will remain unavailable until the handrails are installed.  Please use the ramp and avoid spills by NOT walking through the flower bed. 

Also in laying new sidewalk, the drive through bookdrops were closed over the past weekend.  NO FINES WERE CHARGED on materials returned through Monday morning.  The library is sorry for the inconvenience and hopes you appreciate our beutiful new entrance.
