Check it Out: Library to offer virtual baking club
The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., has announced a new virtual family program starting in March, the Little Red Hen Baking Club.
This is a fun baking club that participants can do from the comfort of their own home. Once a month, families will make simple yeast breads in a bag. All the kneading will strengthen and develop the muscles in your child’s hands needed to become writers. If your child is already a writer, then you can practice your writing by filling in the recipe review card.
The program will be presented by Nina White, children’s librarian. Families will be asked to submit a photo of them preparing, eating, or reviewing their hard work via Flipgrid or email.
This program requires registration to reserve a baking kit. Little Red Hen kits will be become available beginning the second Friday of each month, from March 12 through June 11. One kit per family, and the baking club is limited to 20 families.
Registration to reserve a kit begins Feb. 26, which is National Fairy Tale Day. The program is open to families with children ages 3 to 11. Visit https://calendar.jvbrown.edu//home/event/16792/little-red-hen-bread-baking-club to register.
Read together, bake together, write together!
