Cook-off supports library reading program

Happy New Year! January has started off with an arctic blast, but that actually works out well for our True Grit celebration. What tastes better in frigid weather than chili?

If you are looking for an opportunity to show off your best chili, we have the perfect opportunity for you. Q.B. Boydstun is looking for chili enthusiasts to show off their talent for cooking chili in our chili cook-off Jan. 28.

This is a great opportunity for both novice and experienced competitors. Chili entries will be judged by librarians and others from around Muskogee County. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.

Anyone interested in entering can contact Michelle at (918) 478-3587. Taster kits will be available for $5. All proceeds from the taster kits will be used for Q.B. Boydstun’s 2014 Summer Reading Program.

In this cold weather it’s hard to think of summer, but we are preparing for the 2014 Summer Reading Program. One of our programs for this summer features a ventriloquist. Wayne and his life-sized character Wingnut combine hilarity with vocals and a washboard, harmonica and guitar.

The chili cook-off is just one of our True Grit activities. So, come to the library for the great taste of chili and help support our summer activities at the same time.
