On Display: Check Out a Book; Whip Up Something Delicious!

 

 

Looking for a new recipe to spice up your holiday table, or want to try creating a delicious meal from another culture? Maybe you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier. This display of cookbooks and other food-related reading might just inspire you to think outside your comfort zone when it comes to being in the kitchen. We’ve also included a few select food films and chef biographies that might get you and your culinary skills into the kitchen to whip up something amazing and different!

To feast your eyes on what we’re offering, come to the Library to browse the display or look at the entire list in the catalog (if you’d like, you can click the “Request It” button). You can also go beyond our lobby display by taking a look at the cooking titles in our OverDrive collection of ebooks and audiobooks, and searching our streaming film database Kanopy by typing the word “cooking” in the search box.

Bon appétit!

Diverse Voices Display: Culture Fest 2018 Event

Are you curious about the “world” of resources that the Library offers? Visit the Library lobby all week during Culture Fest to see a pop-up display of books and movies from across the globe!

Do you already have a favorite book or movie from a diverse voice or place that’s not in our collection? Let us know by placing a title into our suggestion box, and we’ll consider adding it. You can also give us your suggestions on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #BentleyLibraryWishlist.

While you’re browsing, visit our giant world map and pinpoint the location where you or your ancestors came from. And of course it’s not a Library event without buttons! We’ll have CultureFest buttons, national flag buttons, and more for you to add to your collection.
