A Persian Feast–Cookbook Book Club/Potluck: Sunday, April 2nd, 5:00 PM

We’re bringing back the ACL cookbook book club for one more try!   You can make a recipe from “Taste of Persia”.  Taste of Persia contains recipes from ancient Persia, or the current Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran and Kurdistan.  Or, you can use any other recipe you find from another Persian cookbook.

Here’s how our ACL Cookbook Club works:

  • Youchose a recipefrom the cookbook.  We’ll have a non-circulating copy of the book at the front desk—you can take a photo or request a photocopy of the recipe you would like to prepare.  There are also many copies of this cookbook in the minuteman library system as well as some recipes available on-line.  You can use any other Persian cookbook too!
  • Sign upat the circulation desk or on http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0849a4a929a3fc1-aclcookbook5
  • Make your dish at home and bring it to the ACL on Sunday, April 2nd, 5:00 PM, ready to eat (we don’t have ability to reheat or refrigerate at the ACL).

From the Book Corner and 2 Tidbits…

St. Patty’s Day at the ACL last week
Two tidbits…
  • Do you ever receive free magazine subscriptions as promotions but you don’t want to receive them at your house?  A wonderful patron gifted the ACL a subscription to Consumer Reports..if you would like to make a similar donation, we’d love it!
  • Do you have used printer ink cartridges for recycling?  Bring them to the front desk a the ACL and we can use them towards office supplies credit at Staples!

Non-fiction ROCKS at the ACL

Non-fiction ROCKS at the ACL

We kindly received in the mail two ACL books from Westport, MA and Waltham public libraries. The one from Westport had been returned there last August! So nice of the libraries to mail them back! (We called and thanked both libraries.) Just a friendly reminder that all our books need to be returned either in the ACL or through our drop-off slot. 

Many Thanks to Our February ACL Volunteers

These volunteers donated their time and talents at the ACL in February.  Next time you see one of them around town, give them a big ol’ hearty THANKS!
