Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA
VEGAN VEGETARIAN OMNIVORE
As dietary preferences change for many from meat-centered to plant-based, it is sometimes difficult to incorporate the variety into shared meals. Renowned vegetarian writer Anna Thomas has released a new cookbook that encompasses options for recipes that allow anyone to share the same food.
Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore presents recipes that start as a vegan base, with the option to expand ingredients to include vegetarian and omnivore compliments, with the goal of bringing everyone together at the same table. CHECK OUT THE THANSGIVING RECIPIES too! West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
Little Free Libraries and Book Drops
CULTIVATING A COMMUNITY OF READERS
The West Lafayette Public Library is proud to announce the opening of a neighborhood Little Free Library and a walk-up library book return box in both Lommel Park and Lincoln Park (seen in the photo above) in West Lafayette.
Working with the West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, with funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS), the West Lafayette Library is expanding the network of library service points in West Lafayette.
The book drops and the little free libraries are now available for use in both parks. Please use and enjoy these new West Lafayette Library services!
