Cooking Club -- 2017 Schedule of Events
The Gale Free Library Cooking Club started in the summer of 2014.  It began in response to patrons' requests for cooking and food-related programs.  We meet monthly and alternate between months where we each bring in a dish related to a certain ingredient or theme, and months where we invite special guests to give lectures and demonstrations on various topics.
All are welcome.  Please join us!
