Wednesday, June 20th @ 6 p.m.  Join us for Cook the Book Trim Healthy Mama Cookbooks. Do you love to cook?  This session’s topic is Trim Healthy Mama Cookbooks. We choose the cookbooks; you choose and make a recipe to share on Wednesday, June 20th at 6 p.m.  Come to the front desk to see the cookbooks (or bring your own), use a Post-It note to mark which recipe you choose, and take a copy of the recipe home.  Prepare the recipe and bring it to share with the other participants.  All participants will discuss how easy or hard it was to make and what worked or didn’t work well. Best of all we get to sample new dishes and bring a copy of the recipes home to share with our families.  This is a FREE program and a great opportunity for cooks of all ages, skill levels and interests to share their love of cooking as well as eating. The library will provide a copy of the recipe and the plates, utensils, and a drink. The next Cook the Book program will be in September 19th  (Fix it & Forget it) & December 19th  (Cookie & Candy Swap).  Registration required, limit 15.  Open to age Teen thru Adult, anyone under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult.  Register online at  or call 219-866-5881, contact Melissa Smith with any questions.
