Get Cookin' with SJCPLS

We are pleased to announce our new culinary literacy program "Community Cooks!" at our Southeast and Hastings branch libraries. Made possible through grant funds and with support from the Northeast Florida Library Information Network and UF IFAS Extension St. Johns County Family & Consumer Sciences, this new program allows participants of all ages to experience hands-on food preparation in a fun and health-enhancing way.


Throughout the summer, the β€œCommunity Cooks!” program is offering four unique and exciting classes covering topics ranging from creating easy, affordable, and healthy meals, learning new cooking techniques and food safety, and discovering ways to snack smarter. Registration is required as space is limited and participants may register for one or all of the classes. We still have space in our Hastings Branch programs. Visit our website to register today!
