January

January is National Soup Month!

 

Did you know that January is National Soup Month?  Makes sense, right?  January is the first full month of Winter, and aside from cold soups like gazpacho, soups are traditionally craved, crafted, and consumed during the colder months of the year.

If you want to celebrate National Soup Month by trying your hand at making soup, HCPL has got you covered!  You may know that the Dewey Decimal number for general cookbooks is 641.5, but did you know that soup cookbooks have their very own Dewey number?  It's 641.813.  Of course, many general cookbooks have soup recipes in them, but if you're looking exclusively for soup recipes, you should start at 641.813.  Here are a few of the titles you'll find there:

January Storytimes

January is one of the coldest months of the year, but that doesn't mean you have to be stuck at home watching T.V. All of the children's programs this month encourage lots of participation in physical activity. Stories read at regular storytimes will all be interactive, inviting you to get up and dance, stretch, shake and be silly. So put on your tennis shoes and comfortable clothes and join us for some fun and energetic play at the library.
