Librarian’s Note, May 2015

On Sunday, May 17, at 3 p.m., Reading Public Library will host a free program, “Menus, Memories & Memorabilia.” Jane Soule, owner of South Woodstock’s Hyacinth House B&B, will share menus, memories, and memorabilia from the 1940s and ‘50s, when her aunt ran the place as a guest house. Jane will share handwritten recipes and menus from those years, along with old recipe books, records of where folks did their shopping, and the names of local farmers and food suppliers from the period. Refreshments reminiscent of the mid-twentieth century will be served. Join us for an exploration of how life and eating habits have changed in Windsor County. For more information, call the library at 484-5588.
