Cook with Cook Memorial
The Cook Memorial Public Library District is proud to unveil our new cookbook, A Library of Recipes: Cook Park and Aspen Drive cooking together with recipes generously supplied by you, our wonderful patrons.
Please join us for an evening of sampling, chef demos and prizes! Chef Michael Maddox formerly of Le Titi de Paris will show us how to make dazzling holiday canapes. Chef Jean-Marc Loustaunau from Cafe Pyrenees will demonstrate his silky smooth creme brulee recipe, which can be found in the cookbook.
Cookbooks will be available for purchase for $15. Proceeds will help us continue to provide computer classes, author visits, summer reading programs, enhancements to our collections and more. These beautiful books make excellent holiday gifts and for each book purchased, your name will be entered in a drawing for great prizes.

During October and November the State Library of Illinois is providing access to a wide variety of databases. This is a wonderful opportunity to use electronic resources the library doesn't subscribe to, and it's free. Go to TryIt! Illinois to see the list of databases available.
We are not permitted to put the login and password information online, but you can ask for it by visiting or calling the Adult Reference Desk (847-362-2330).Add a comment
