April 2015: Bake and Cook Books

OUR LIBRARIAN RECOMMENDS: Bake and Cook Books

I estimate Congregation Shaarei Shalom added about 1800 books to our library at the time of our merger. About 1000 of them have been processed and are on our shelves until we ran out of shelf space. We just added about 42 feet of additional shelving so I have begun again processing these books. Today I added 23 Shaari Shalom books to our shelves. These are 23 very beautiful “Bake and Cook Books”. 

These are in addition to about 25 “Bake and Cook Books” previously shelved. What I can gather from the large number of “Bake and Cook Books” the Congregants of Shaarei Shalom must be big noshers (big eaters). I would love to describe each of these books but space will not permit that. Instead let me just list them for you. Call me at 516-623-6739 or e-mail me at judgejerry@optonline.net. If you cannot get to the library, we deliver!
