SRP Mission Eat Around the World

June 20th, 2024 · No Comments · Adult Summer Reading Program, Book Recommendations, Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch, West Branch

Go on a culinary adventure around the world with the Manchester City Library and earn points toward this year’s Adult Summer Reading Program! From June 17 through August 10, earn points toward the SRP by cooking cuisine from around the world. Learn something new by making a dish from each of the following regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, and North America.

To earn points toward the SRP, either upload a picture of your creation to Read Squared or bring in the filled-out paper form to the librarian at the information desk. Including the recipe is optional but encouraged! Those not enrolled in the Adult SRP will not get points but are welcome to participate. Each region is worth 100 points and do at least three in order to complete the mission!
