Exhibits, activities, demonstrations and educational programs will all be part of "Culinary Curiosity" beginning Friday, Oct. 4, at the Schaumburg Township District Library, 130 S. Roselle Road. This special, multifaceted event will continue through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020, with programs for all ages.

The "Culinary Curiosity" exhibit will have elements throughout the library to help visitors explore the world of 1900s cooking, where food comes from and how it's produced.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The Cutting Edge section showcases old-time devices that sliced meats and vegetables, while the Farm to Fork section displays tools used long ago by farmers to spray insecticide, pick fruit, prepare seeds and plant crops.

Drawn from the personal collections of Mel and Janet Mickevic, this exhibit is on public display for the first time. Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Aurora Public Library and Gail Borden Public Library District are also hosting elements of this large, 250-item exhibit. For a chance to win a prize, pick up a "Culinary Curiosity" passport from a participating library and visit two or more of them.

A variety of programs for adults, teens and children will take place from October through December. For a full listing, visit www.SchaumburgLibrary.org.

In addition to the exhibits and programs, the library is coordinating a Community Cookbook. Residents are welcome to submit recipes and food photos online at https://culinarycuriositytourslibraries.com.
