Book Sale: Visit the Markesan Public Library starting this week Friday (Aug 14) and into next week for our expanded ongoing used book sale. Hardcover books, movies, and audio books are only .50 cents. Paperbacks and children’s books are .25 cents. Magazines are free. To be COVID responsive, as with our regular books, we will have a quarantine cart for items touched but not wanted or patrons can use hand sanitizer or hand washing before and after browsing. All proceeds will go back into the library budget to help us purchase new items for our collection. Thank you in advance for supporting this important fundraising activity.
Chairs Needed: Another fundraising event we need help with is next year’s “Chair Affair.” The Markesan Public Library Chair Affair is being planned for 2021. Please consider donating your structurally sound, wooden chairs to the library. Check your garage, basement, and attic for old unused chairs. Over the summer and fall chairs will be collected. Then chairs will be given to local volunteers to paint and decorate for a silent auction – date TBD. The money raised will help the library fund its programs and weather the COVID-19 setbacks. We know its early, but we need your chairs now.
Freezer Meal Class:
Join the Markesan Public Library and UW-Extension’s Katie Gelling for a free, online Freezer Meal Class on August 26th at 6pm. This class is perfect for people whose gardens have done a little too well- those who stay up late at night, overwhelmed, thinking of all the lovely vegetables they need to harvest, process, and give away. It is also the perfect class for people who want to save time and money as freezing allows you to buy in bulk and cook in big batches. Freezing foods is simple, fast, and delicious when done correctly. In this smart meal preparation class, we will specifically look at safe and healthy ways to make freezer meals. Katie will also assemble a quick and simple meal, Freezer Lasagna Roll-ups. If you’d like to cook along here is the ingredient list:
Freezer Lasagna Roll-ups
· 2 eggs
· 1, 15oz container of part-skim ricotta cheese
· 1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
· 8oz mozzarella cheese, freshly shredded and divided (about 2 cups shredded total)
· 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 1/2 teaspoon pepper
· 1, 24 oz jar of your favorite pasta sauce
· 12 lasagna noodles
