DAVENPORT, IOWA (August 31, 2021) — Do you like baking, reading, or both? Then this video series may be for you! In this series, one of our reference librarians will attempt to make dessert recipes drawn from beloved fiction books. They'll also recommend the books and media which inspired the recipes, available from our Rivershare libraries. Packets with the recipes and tips will be available at all three branches, and videos will be posted on Davenport Public Library’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/c/DavPubLib Saturday mornings at 8:30AM.

September 4: Chocolate hockey pucks in honor of Beartown by Fredrik Backman.

September 18: Blackberry ice cream in honor of House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Clune.

September 25: Lembas from Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit www.davenportlibrary.com or call the library at (563) 326-7832.
