Mortimer the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the red nosed reinderRudolph the red-nosed reindeer here!  I am so important because I lead Santa’s sleigh!  Yeah, LEAD the sleigh!  That’s right, I’m a VERY important Moose…errr, I mean reindeer.  And I fly!  How cool is that?!  My mom was just telling me the other day, “Mortimer, you are a very important moose!”  Oh, I meant “Rudolph” instead of Mortimer.  Oh, and “reindeer” instead of moose.  Flying so much makes me forgetful.

Anyway, I want to tell you that my best bud Santa will be here at the library Thursday, December 15th for pictures and stories and ho ho ho’s!  Yea Santa!  I’m sure he will ask me to light up the whole room with my bright nose, which might be too bright for inside, so maybe not.  Still, it will be an awesome evening!  I’ll see you here at 5:45!  Oh, and don’t forget to call and sign up!  Just tell them you heard it from Mortimer the red-nosed reindeer!  No, I mean Rudolph the red-nosed moose.  No, wait…

Just come, and we’ll work out the details later…

Chopped Competition

Compete in teams to create the tastiest dishes out of the library’s three super-secret ingredients! Inspired by the Food Network show, this event is open to teens in grades 6-12. This year, no registration is necessary. However, if you have food allergies or a special, please let the library know in advance.  Call the library at 330-343-6123 for more information.

At the event, teens will be divided into teams and asked to make an appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert using the library’s three secret ingredients and miscellaneous items from the library’s “Pantry.” Each dish must contain at least one of the three ingredients. Each of the three ingredients must be used at least once. There must be enough of each dish to serve a taste to everyone at the event. Judging will be based on the use of the three ingredients, creativity, presentation, and, of course, taste. After the allotted time is up, everyone will get a chance to sample everyone else’s dishes and vote for the team that they think should win. Teens cannot vote for their own teams.

No ingredients will need to be cooked. A microwave will be available for heating ingredients. All teens will be expected to clean up their own messes and do their own dishes before leaving the event.

What will you try to melt this year? Hershey kisses, marshmallows, candy corn… Every year, something gets melted.
