Cooking Classes without a Kitchen

Class Details

Librarians know that food programs are always a great program to bring in patrons. Cooking programs are a great way to provide nutritional and health information to patrons, as well as celebrate cuisines from different cultures. They’re also a lot of fun and a very interactive program where patrons can learn from each other as well. However not every library is fortunate enough to have a kitchen programming space. We’ll go over some ideas for how libraries without a kitchen can work around this and still provide great food programs for their patrons.

Christopher Morgan (MLS, University at Buffalo '13) is an adult programming and outreach librarian at the Newburgh Free Library. In addition to being a food and cooking program enthusiast Christopher likes incorporating pop culture in library programs.

Patty Sussmann (MLS, SUNY - Albany '90) has been a librarian for a long time and a foodie for even longer. Currently serving as a Collections Development Librarian at Newburgh Free Library, she loves how food & books bring people together.
