This summer we’ve paired up two of our favorite programs – The “Someone’s in the Kitchen” Cook Book Club and outdoor concerts on the deck!
Here’s what you need to know:

  • We’ll be on the deck behind the library. We have some chairs ,but it wouldn’t hurt to bring your own. 
  • The picnics and concerts are on Wednesdays. If it’s raining we’ll try for Thursday, the next day.
  • You can come to either or both events, no registration required.
  • Here’s how the cook book club works: come to the library to get a copy of the book of the week. (or check it out on Hoopla) Enjoy the book at home, then bring a dish for the picnic. We usually share the dishes potluck-style, but if you’re not comfortable with that you can just bring your own picnic meal, that’s OK too.  We like to talk about what we did or didn’t like about the cookbook and why we choose the dish that we brought.
  • How can we offer free concerts with such fantastic artists? Friends of Pomfret Public Library! Please consider becoming a member and help keep the great programs coming!
