Library Calls All Cooks

Geauga County Public Library Calls All Cooks

Geauga County – April 11th, 2023 – On July 9th, 1963, at the request of the Chardon Public Library’s board of officials, three of the four independently operating libraries in Geauga County joined forces to create the Geauga County Public Library system we all know and love. To celebrate this historic achievement 60 years later, Geauga County Public Library is calling all local cooks and bakers to help the library compile a celebratory cookbook with 60 different recipes.

Library patrons may submit their most beloved recipes on our homepage at or through a physical form located at your every Geauga County Public Library branch. Submissions opened on April 1st and will remain so through May 30th. To have your recipe considered for the cookbook, please limit your submissions to two per patron and include all pertinent cooking information in the submission form so that others may successfully recreate your favorite dish.

Limited copies of the community cookbook will be available to library patrons at Geauga County Public Library’s 60th Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 12th, at Veterans Legacy Woods in Newbury Township (limited copies available; available on a first-come,
first-served basis).

Visit our homepage to find more information about Geauga County Public Library’s 60th Anniversary Cookbook, Party, as well as anything and everything about your local library system.
