Canastota Public Library Bountiful Harvest Time

It's the end of the summer here at the library. The summer reading program has come to an end and we are gearing up for a wonderful autumn and back to school season.

Although it has been a wet summer, several patrons have started to stop by with gifts from their gardens. The staff at the library has been blessed with zucchini, tomatoes and cabbage. We're all looking for great recipes and new ways to use these fabulous harvest bounties. Angela recently took home a zucchini and came back with a mock apple pie using zucchini rather than apples. It was a wonderful apple pie!!!!

If you are looking for new ways to serve your garden favorites, check out our recipe book section on the main level of the library. We have a great selection of books on preserving your harvest including canning, smoking and freezing. Our recipe books also include different variations of recipes.

If you can't find anything you are looking for in that section, let your feet carry you to the periodical room where we have over 150 subscriptions to magazines and newspapers. We carry a wide range of cooking magazines including Cooking Light, Cooking for Two, Cook's Country and more!

We hope to see you this week....Among The the Canastota Public Library
