Presenting Champion Chef Jr!

Do you have what it takes to be the first ever TTL Champion Chef Jr?

Have you seen the shows Chopped or Chopped Jr? We are excited to announce our first ever Champion Chef challenge, designed especially for children 12 & under with the help of their grown-ups!

Your challenge is to take the four ingredients (and anything else you want to use) and then combine them to make a delicious main course meal. You can use anything in your kitchens for your dish, but you have to use a protein (chicken or substitute), apple, potato . . . and . . . CANDY CORN!

Make sure to take a picture of your creation and submit it along with a description of how you used the necessary ingredients (or the whole recipe if you’d like) in the form below to see if you will be crowned Champion Chef Jr. We’ll share your creations on social media and who knows? Maybe this is how your little chef will be discovered.

All submissions must be received before Thursday, October 29 at 7 pm. The form below will be unavailable after that time.

Spring Appeal is Live

If you’ve been reading AdLib over the last several months, you know our programming librarians are hard at work organizing and facilitating virtual programs for all ages.
We are so delighted to bring what you love about the library home through the virtual programs and digital materials, but these do come at a cost.
TTL recently launched the Spring Fundraising Appeal to ask our community for donations to cover these and other costs at the library. Any donation amount– even what you might spend on drink or food at a live trivia event– makes a difference and ensures that the library can continue to provide virtual programs and, hopefully, in-person programs soon!
