Niles Library: Fiction for Foodies meets Tuesday

Published 10:59pm Monday, April 9, 2012

By NANCY STUDEBAKER

For this week, there is no book review, but I do have some suggestions:

• For young boys:  “Guys Read: Funny Business,” edited by Jon Scieszka

• For young girls: “Liesl & Po,” by Lauren Oliver

• For teens: “Ender’s Game,” by Orson Scott Card

• For Adults: “Harbor,” by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Upcoming youth services events

• Join us this week for Evening Storytime! Evening Storytime will meet from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. today in the storyroom in the Children’s Department.

• This Saturday will be Legos at the Library, from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Boys and girls of any skill level between the ages of 9 and 14 are welcome. If you have any questions, feel free to call the Children’s Department at 683-8545 ext. 106.

• Also meeting on Saturday is the Jr. Garden Club at 1 p.m.  Call or stop by the Children’s Department for details or to register. This week we will be learning a little about bees and the thing they are most well known for producing, honey.

Upcoming adult services events

• Fiction for Foodies will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the community room.  This month’s read is “Heartburn,” by Nora Ephron. Participants will discuss the book and are asked to bring a dish inspired by the book.  The public is welcome.

• Monday will be Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes.

It’s time to get ready to submit your edible creations for the Edible Book Contest.

Your entry can be an elaborate cake inspired by a children’s classic, or a blob of catsup inspired by your favorite murder mystery.

Anyone can join in the fun. Official entry forms should be completed and submitted to the information desk by Thursday. All edible creations must be delivered to the Niles District Library on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Voting will take place between 1 and 2 p.m. The three categories for each group will be Most Creative Interpretation of a Book, Best Sherlock Holmes and Best Hunger Games in three age groups — Adult, Tween and Teen (10-17) — and Youth — up to 9 years old.

There will be four prizes awarded ($25 Hackers Gift Certificates for the teen and youth prizes, a $25 Martin’s Gift Card for adults and a $50 Martin’s Gift Card for the People’s Choice Award).
All library visitors are welcome to vote.

We request that all entries be family friendly and the library reserves the right to reject any entries deemed inappropriate.

• The Friends of Niles District Library will be having a book sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
All books will be 10 cents.
