Our March book is Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. We meet on Thursday, March 22nd at 7 pm. Contact the library if you would like to join our group
Our second cookbook club meeting is tomorrow at 6 pm. We will be making recipes from the book, Abraham Lincoln in the Kitchen by Rae Katherine Eighmey. You may still have time to participate if you can come to the library today, browse the book, and make a copy of one of the recipes.
Our menu so far is still Slow Cooked Barbecue Chicken, Soldier Bread, and Almond Pound Cake. So, I guess we have the meat group, the bread group, and most importantly the dessert group!
Come see the display on the chicken incubator that was recently donated to the library. Our history room master display person has worked her magic to make a special display. My blurry picture does not do it justice. I hope that you can make it into the library to see it!

Friends of the El Paso District Library Meeting at 10:30 am. (The Friends are trying something new with morning meetings.) If you would like to become a Friend, attend the meeting to find out all the things the Friends do!
Kim Mullins, the Joyful Genealogist was at the library last Thursday evening to present Genealogy 101. It was a very informative lecture on how to get started in genealogy, including the types of material to collect at home or from relatives, how to organize your records, and some basic information about the importance of citing your sources. There were twelve of us in the audience and everyone seemed to enjoy the presentation. If we have enough feedback, we will consider having Kim come back for more courses on Genealogy. Let us know if you would be interested.
Kim's daughter won the raffle drawing. The prize was a box of candy from the Minonk Chocolate Company.
Is the cold winter weather getting to you? If you feel stuck at home and would like something new to do, give our Knit and Crochet Club a try! People who have never done either before are welcome as well as those who are experienced. You can bring a current project you are working on or you can look through some of our books with suggested projects in them. You can bring your own needles but we do have needles and yarn available.
We meet on the 1st Monday of the month from 2 pm to 7 pm. We also meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6 pm to 8 pm.
Our next meeting is Tuesday, February 20th from 6 pm to 8 pm.
We will also meet on Monday, March 5th from 2 pm to 7 pm. Time was added during the daytime hours for those who do not long to go out on the cold winter nights. You can come and go as you please!
We hope to see you there!
