PRESCHOOL STORY TIME : Clothes I Wear in the Snow

JAN. 18, Sat., 2 – 3:30 p.m., BLIZZARD BASH for Kids

Come out in the cold for some wintery crafts, games, and treats. For grades K-6. Registration is required: call the library or stop by the children’s room to sign up.

JAN. 23, Thurs., 6-7:30 p.m., HISTORY OF PIONEER COOKING

Do you know how many kinds of corn there are, who invented the supermarket, or how pumpkins saved the pioneers? Do you wonder what Ohio’s settlers went through to feed a growing family before the days of Zip-Lock bags, paper towels, and white flour, with limited seasonings and food preservation methods? Join Galion history buff Mike Hocker as he answers these questions and many more during his slide show presentation, The History of Pioneer Cooking. A Q&A session will follow the lecture. This program is an opportunity to put into context all that America has brought to the table, literally. Even non-cooks will find something interesting, since it is about eating, our culture, and our local history as much as it is about cooking. Registration is required.
