Each month the series will have a theme selected by participants, and the library will set aside suggested cookbooks for participants to browse. Patrons will be asked to reserve a place for each program, and enrollment will be limited to 24. While continuing participation is strongly encouraged, patrons may also sign up just for those themes that interest them.
Participants will provide food, serving utensils, and their own place settings. The Friends will provide the group leader as well as drinks.

Flyers will be posted in the library before each gathering detailing sign-up instructions and themes for each gathering. Information will also appear in the newspaper, in the library newsletter, on the Friends bulletin board, and online on the Friends website, on Facebook, and Twitter.
If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… people who give you their food give you their heart.
