Halloween Storytime Drop In!

Do you have little ones who are eager to get out tonight? We’re holding a Halloween Storytime Drop In for 2-5 year olds this afternoon at 1:30pm. It’ll be a fun half hour of spooky stories and more–all aimed at the younger crowd.

Dress up, if you like, and drop in. No registration necessary. See you later……..

Vegetarian, anyone?

We have a lot of great vegetarian cookbooks at the library (like the one above), and we seem to be stocking more each day. With more people choosing a plant-based diet, this has become a popular and healthy trend. If you’re interested in cooking more vegetarian, or just want to see what the fuss is all about, drop by the library and check out a few of these great new cookbooks. Even if you only do a vegetarian meal once a week, your family will be better off for it.

But if you’ve done the full switch to a plant-based life, you’ve probably noticed how hard it is to fit this lifestyle into the every day. Eating out, family meals, school lunches, coffee with friends…all of it becomes more difficult to do, and that can be stressful. I found this interesting article on YesandYes that offers up some tips to eating better and staying sane.

Do you have any great tips for eating vegetarian? Any favourite cookbooks or recipes? Feel free to share them here in the comments. We’d love to hear about them!
