KCLS launches 'A Place at the Table' series at the Kenmore, Bothell libraries this weekend

The King County Library, including branches in Kenmore and Bothell, is launching a new adult programming series called "A Place at the Table." This series involves addressing food in all of its iterations, including: growing food, cooking, preserving, nutrition and health, food in cinema, food in art, and, of course, food in books/literature.

The King County Library System invites the community to bring donations of nonperishable food to their local library as part of "A Place at the Table." KCLS has partnered with Hopelink and with Food Lifeline to distribute the donations to 39 local food banks county wide from March through December 2013. The program begins in March at the Bothell and Kenmore Libraries.

Kenmore will host "Kitchen & Garden Feng Shui for Healthy Living" from 2-3 p.m. tomorrow in room one. The KCLS describes the event as, "Feng Shui tips to enhance your kitchen including colors that stimulate digestion and conversation and how to utilize garden, deck and patio spaces to grow food and create a sense of well being through nature. Registration preferred but not required."

On Sunday, the Bothell branch will host "Meet the Author: Jennie Grant, City Goats - the Goat Justice League's guide to backyard goat keeping" in the  meeting room from 2-3 p.m.. The KCLS describes the event as, "Jennie Grant is the author of City Goats: the Goat Justice League's guide to backyard goat keeping. Grant is passionate about food policy, particularly in regards to the dairy industry."

Registration preferred by not required.
