Events At Lakewood Public Library
Knit and Lit
Gail Eaton hosts a social club for multitaskers - a combination book club and stitchery group. She’s looking for readers who can enjoy intense discussion of modern classics while relaxing with their latest project. Come share your passion for great literature and show off your knitting, crocheting, counted cross-stitch, embroidery and quilting works-in-progress. At the close of every meeting, the group decides which book will be read for next time. Visit www.lakewoodpubliclibrary.org/bookclubs for a complete list of the books being considered and find out which title you should read for the next discussion.

Jeni is coming and she's bringing her scooper! After spending fifteen years perfecting the art of rich and creamy, handmade, hand-packed, small batch, gourmet ice cream, Jeni Britton Bauer shares her secrets in this tempting book of recipes. Seven artisanal scooperies and a thriving mail-order business keep her too busy to fill the demand, so its up to you to fill your freezer with Goat Cheese and Roasted Cherries, Salty Caramel, Darkest Chocolate in the World and more. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event. To inspire you, the Friends of Lakewood Public Library will provide free sample scoops. Supply is limited, so bring a spoon and be there first!

Sunday with the Friends: Diana Chittester
No one taught her but her guitar. The music just had to come out. And while this energetic young singer-songwriter is hardly a newcomer, we predict a long and rewarding career ahead. See her perform here and you’ll be able to tell your friends that you once saw her play at the Library.
