Do you love to cook? Cook the Book is coming! Sign up today!

Wednesday, October 7 at 1 PM - Exploring Appetizers!

If you love cookbooks and trying new recipes,
join us for a delicious lunchtime "cook group"!

We have selected 3 cookbooks from our collection and held them at the Reference Desk.  Stop by to peruse them and find a recipe that appeals to you.  We will photocopy it for you.  Make it at home and bring it to the library and we will share the food we've made as well as all the recipes and what we thought of them, what we liked about them and what we didn't.
Brand new and experienced cooks are welcome.
We'll provide the coffee and tea, plates and cutlery.

Cookbooks will be available at the Reference Desk from now until October 7.

Noise in the library

Question:  "Although I know that the library is a meeting place that facilitates all kinds of useful interaction (study groups, coupon seekers), some of these groups get exceptionally loud and seem to have no concern for others who come to the library for quiet.  If possible, could library staff please try to keep quiet the individuals who get a bit too loud during their activities?"

Response:  Whenever we hear library users not adhering to our quiet policy, we ask them to comply.  However, since the library has many areas that are not within our hearing range, we would appreciate those who are being disturbed by the talking or antics of others to report your concern to the librarian at the Reference Desk who will then handle the situation.   There are two study rooms behind the Reference Desk that are available for tutoring, as well as small group or individual study.

First Monday Films with Irv Slifkin: Odd Man Out

Join film expert and author, Irv Slifkin, for this month's feature:  Odd Man Out

Directed by Carol Reed. With James Mason, Robert Newton, Cyril Cusack, F.J. McCormick. Suspense and politics mix in this intense saga of an escaped convict and member of an IRA-like organization who ventures outside after months of hiding only to get involved in a crime that leads him to ponder his life. Meanwhile, a rabid manhunt for him ensues on the dark streets of Belfast. A tune-up for Reed's "The Thin Man," released two years later and in many respects, just as impressive.

 U.K., 1947, 116 minutes

When:  Monday, September 14 at 7 p.m.

Where:  Moorestown Library, Meeting Room A

Free and no registration required!
