Cookbook Book Club

Currently looking for participants!

Saturday, November 17 at 1pm

A cook book club is a cross between a book club and a potluck. Each month we will will choose a book, and on the day of the meeting everybody will come to the library and bring one of the recipes from the book to share with the club. We’ll meet and eat and chat about the book and whatever else happens to come up.


  1. Sign up: call the library or email with your name and phone number. Currently, we are limiting it to 12 members.
  2. Get the book: You can place your own hold, or we will order the book for you—you’ll get an email, call, or text when it arrives, just like any other library book.
  3. Pick a recipe: Go through the book and find some recipes you would like to make!
  4. Tell us what you picked: Call us (or email Katherine) to tell her what recipe you choose. You can take as long as you want to decide, up to the day before the meeting, but once someone chooses a recipe, no one else is allowed to make it and you’ll have to pick again.
  5. Come to club and share your recipe! Talk about what you loved or hated about it, and sample everyone else’s creations.

Do you have a collection?

If you have a cool collection that you’d like to share with everyone, we can display it at the library. Whatever you collect—rubber ducks, action figures, tea cups—show it off in our big display case in the children’s room.

Talk to Miss Alyce to sign up.

Knitting Club

Fourth Monday at 6pm

Join us to knit or crochet (or do whatever you do with yarn)! People of all skill levels are welcome. We can help you with a problem or mistake that needs fixing, you can learn from the beginning, or maybe learn a new technique. It will be a casual group that morphs to fit what the members want.

Bone Builders of RI

bone builders

Meets weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 1:30pm, and Saturdays at 10:30am

Bone Builders is an innovative exercise program based on collaborative work of international bestselling author Dr. Miriam Nelson and Tufts University, whose research has shown that moderate free-weight training preformed at least twice a week for six months can improve strength and balance, and increase energy levels, while significantly increasing bone density. This class meets three times a week in the North Scituate Public Library Meeting Room.
