Norman Public Library to host annual Cookbook Swap and Shop

NORMAN — The Norman Public Library invites cooks of all skill levels and interests to its annual Cookbook Swap and Shop, set for 10 a.m. July 13, in the Lowry Room of the library, 225 N. Webster Ave.

Participants are asked to bring their unwanted cookbooks to the event to swap them with other local chefs.

In addition, the Friends of the Norman Public Library also will set up an area to sell gently used cookbooks at bargain prices.

The featured presenter at the program will be Katie Johnstonbaugh, a cook, author and blogger who will demonstrate a muffin recipe as well as bringing several samples of her other work. She also will have copies of her book “The Food Lovers Guide to Oklahoma” available for sale and to sign.

Refreshments will be served and door prizes given away during the event, which runs until 1 p.m. Registration is not required to attend.

For more information on this and other programs and services offered at the library, call 701-2600 or go online to www.justsoyouknow.us/norman. Also, follow the library’s activities on Facebook at “Pioneer Library System” or on Twitter @mylibrary2go.

Teens can ‘Get Down

to Dance’ at the library

Norman-area teens can “Get Down to Dance” this summer with the guidance of a modern dance instructor.

Rachel Hendricks, who has about 10 years teaching across a range of ages and ability levels, will work with teens at PLS hometown libraries this summer to instill a few things they can quickly learn and handle.

The program takes place at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Norman Public Library.

“We’ll work on how to isolate different parts of the body in dancing, things they can take to social settings,” Hendricks said. “We do it in a way of seeing what dance is and what it can be. Dance can be a real confidence builder.”
