Fall is here and there’s a chill in the morning air. Sundays are full to the brim with football and friends. It is the perfect time of year to pull out the crockpot and find some great chili and/or soup recipes. If you come into the library, you can browse the aisles of cookbooks and be delighted in all the wonderful things you can make. And just imagine how wonderful your house will smell with a pot roast cooking all day long. Putting dinner in your crockpot will also give you time you might not otherwise have to do other more enjoyable things.

Perhaps you want to start thinking about Halloween and what you may want to cook or decorate for trick-or-treaters! Check-out (no pun intended) The Penny Whistle Halloween Book for some fun ideas. If you are planning a Halloween Bash, you may want to check-out Family Fun Tricks and Treats for ideas on costumes, crafts and food. You can have lots of fun making all those scary treats or tricks…

Are you cooking Thanksgiving Dinner this year? What are you going to make? Are you planning to decorate? You may want to browse our shelves of magazines. You will find all kinds of interesting ideas and perhaps inspiration for new dishes. When in doubt, Martha Stewart’s Living is always a great choice. Cooking Light, Better Homes and Gardens, Southern Living and Every Day with Rachel Ray are also great magazine choices for even the most novice holiday cook. You will be inspired not only in your culinary endeavors, but also in your decorating details.

And don’t blink because before you know it the Christmas holidays will be looming on the horizon. It is never too early to start planning for the winter holidays. Music always seems to put me in the holiday mood. Come in and browse our selection of holiday CD music. We have everything from A Celtic Christmas, Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, to Kwanzaa Music and The Kiezmer Conservator Band Oy Chanukah. You can also find wonderful holiday cookbooks, magazines and don’t forget the DVD collection. It’s a Wonderful Life, A Charlie Brown Christmas and a few other classic holiday movies.

Just knowing that the library can provide these wonderful books, movies, magazines and music can take away a lot of unnecessary stress this holiday season.

We’ll see you in the stacks…
