NCLSA SPREAD WARMTH THIS WINTER

The New City Library Staff Association (NCLSA) donated over 50 handmade scarves to the non-profit Sunday Supper organization in Nyack last month. These scarves were given to local people in need, along with a warm meal, on Christmas Day.

Members of NCLSA, with much help from the New City Library Crochet and Knitting Clubs, produced dozens of scarves in a variety of colors and styles during this six-week drive. The association also used the project as the impetus for a scarf raffle to raise funds for the Rockland Family Shelter, which resulted in a $75 donation.

What's Cooking?: A Culinary Journey Around the World

Getting cabin fever? Want to do some traveling? Cookbooks are a great vehicle to expand your horizons to foreign lands. Get a taste of a culture, the people, and most importantly, the foods, just by walking through international cookbooks. You can travel across an exotic country like Tibet, a province like Provence, France, or a region like the Mediterranean. The trek is boundless. From browsing the recipes and their ingredients you can envision the types of spices, vegetables, grains and livestock that are indigenous to that area. Have you ever used turmeric, cumin, tamarind, or lemongrass? Have you heard about stinky tofu or durian fruit from Southeast Asia? How about being adventurous by adding octopus, eel or snails to your menu? Well, if these food items don’t turn you on, there are plenty of scrumptious dishes that are sure to entice you. “Traveling” through these cookbooks also introduces us to new and different methods of cooking.
