July is the Month of Cooking

Adult Programming gets tasty at Stratford this July.  We will be offering several cooking related programs:

Cooking Online Computer Class: Thur, July 12 at 11:30 am

Learn how to search recipes, create a virtual recipe box, utilize ratings and tips, and input your own creations online to save and calculate the nutritional information.

Cookbook Potluck: Wed, July 18 at 1:00 pm

Let's share recipes! Choose a favorite cookbook or try something new and check out one at the library. Then get the chance to swap samples with other cookbook adventurers! Small first and second place prizes will be awarded for best dishes. 

Meet Evelyn

Evelyn Wotipka is a Texas native, growing up in the Crosby/Highlands area.  She has 2 children, 3 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and –until recently – she also had a disdain for computers.  When Stratford began offering computer classes last fall, Evelyn was one of the first to sign up, although the staff were instructed not to let anyone one know she was willing to use one of those pesky computers.  “I don’t want anyone to know I’ve finally agreed to touch that thing.”

Summer Programs - Not Just for Kids!

Summer time at the library is jam-packed with activities and special programming, but it's not just for kids! We have some special programs lined up for adults including computer classes, guest speakers, creative writing and book clubs, and more!

Kick off the summer with us as we celebrate the beginning of Adult Summer Reading program with a party on Wed, June 6th at 1:00 pm! Bring your A-game as teams go head to head in friendly competition playing group board games, enjoy refreshments, and try your luck at winning door prizes.
