What is your favorite recipe? What recipe has been handed down in your family from generation to generation?
The Library is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a cookbook to be published in Fall 2021. The library is currently soliciting local recipes to be added. You can add your recipe by following this special link: http://stratfordlibrary.org/125th which has all the information (including the form) to submit your recipe.
2021 marks the Stratford Library’s quasquicentennial, or 125th anniversary! Whether you just moved to Stratford this year or still have your beige Stratford Library Association card, we’re sure you’ll want to make some 125th anniversary memories with us.
One way you can connect with the Stratford Library’s 125th celebrations is with food! The Stratford Library 125th Anniversary Committee is assembling a Stratford Library cookbook. We’d love to receive your family recipes so that everyone in Stratford can enjoy them. Honor a relative or a friend by sharing your recipe’s history so your memories will live on in our town.
Cookbook submissions will be accepted through May 21, 2021. Cookbooks will be available for purchase starting in Fall 2021. Each print cookbook purchase includes an ebook version – whether you are a cookbook collector or a smartphone sous-chef, our cookbook will work for you!
Speaking of books – book sales at the library have been cancelled, and they are still not collecting donations because their volunteers do not have a Covid-safe space to manage and sort the donations. They also do not have a space to stockpile donations until their volunteers can return. If people have books to donate, they can call and check with Goodwill and Savers (in Milford) or the Pequot Library (Southport) to see if they are accepting donations.
