Upcoming Events
Cheese Class
April 18th at 6:00 PM
MPL Community Room

Want to jazz up your cheese plate with something other than the same old colby-jack and cheddar? 
Join Leslie Jacobsen & Nancy Mayfield for an introduction to six interesting cheeses that can be found at stores where you may already shop. We'll discuss the type of milks used, where and how the cheeses are made, and let you experiment with suggested pairings, or create your own! 
Class size will be limited, so get registered by Saturday, April 13th at the library or by phone. 
There is no cost for this class. It is intended for adult patrons.
