Hungry for fun? Rock Island Library offers summer cooking programs for adults
As part of the adult summer activities theme of "Books are Brain Food," the Rock Island Public Library will offer a series of free Recipe Club and Swap programs at the Rock Island Main and Southwest Branches this summer.

Participants should bring a recipe to share. No registration is required. The events are free and open to the public.
In addition to free events, the Rock Island Library is also rewarding adults who read this summer. To enter the summer reading contest, adults 18 and over should fill out one entry slip for each book the entrant completes reading between June 4 and July 27. Books read before June 4 do not qualify. All entries must be returned by Friday, July 27. Entry forms and entry boxes are available at all Rock Island Libraries. Prizes will be drawn and winners notified after August 3.
Details about summer reading events for all ages are available online at www.rockislandlibrary.org or at the Rock Island Public Library Main, 30/31 or Southwest Branches.
2012 summer reading contests and programs at the Rock Island Public Library are funded by Friends of the Rock Island Public Library, the Milan-Blackhawk Area Public Library District (Southwest Branch location), and the Rock Island Public Library Foundation.
