Use a library cookbook to beat the heat with a cold treat

There’s no denying that so far it has been one scorcher of a summer. Every day seems hotter than the last and that humidity is enough to make a stone sweat!

Luckily for you, each branch of the Niagara Falls Public Library comes equipped with air conditioning and a number of fabulous cookbooks you can borrow to whip up some wonderful frozen desserts that will help you chill out.

Here’s a list of some of the coolest cookbooks to try:

For the Love of Popsicles: Naturally Delicious Icy Sweet Summer Treats from A-Z by Sarah Bond
Fruity popsicles! Creamy popsicles! Healthy popsicles! Boozy popsicles! This book has it all and then some. All you need is a popsicle mold, some popsicle sticks, and a bit of patience while your delicious concoction freezes.

The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments by David Lebovitz
This cookbook has recipes for both the experienced and the inexperienced ice cream maker, as well as for the simple and the sophisticated palette. You can try a traditional Vanilla Ice Cream or an out-there Orange Szechuan Pepper Ice Cream. The choice is yours!

200 Best Ice Pop Recipes by Andrew Chase
Here you can find ice pop recipes from around the world and back again. Make a Jamaican Sorrel Punch Ice Pop, or a Purple Sweet Potato and Coconut Ice Pop, or a Black Fig Ice Pop, or a Saffron and Pistachio Kulfi Ice Pop, or (better yet) make them all so you don’t have to decide.

The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough
Whether you want a gelato, a semifreddo, or a frozen chiffon cake, this book has you covered. What’s more? The authors so many variations for all of their recipes that you’re sure to find a favourite and unique flavour combination!

N'ice Cream: 80+ Recipes for Healthy Homemade Vegan Ice Creams by Virpi Mikkonen and Tuulia Talvio
If you’re vegan, lactose intolerant, or just into trying something new and cow-friendly, these vegan ice cream recipes are just the ticket! They’ll keep you (and the environment) cool, plus they taste great and even the pickiest eaters won’t notice that they’re dairy-free.

To borrow these or any of our other incredible cookbooks, please call the library at 905-356-8080 or visit any one of our 4 locations and a staff member will be happy to assist you.

Library Notes

2019-09-21

For the most part, we have been enjoying some pleasant weather this month in Niagara Falls. Of course, this has not always been the case. Ninety-nine years ago, it was an entirely different story.

Science Literacy Week runs from September 16th to the 22nd. While many of us may think that it’s aimed mostly at kids and teens, the truth is that everyone can celebrate science and oceans research in Canada.

September is an exciting time of year, and Niagara Falls Public Library is ready to celebrate with fun programs and events.

Be sure to pick up our Fall 2019 magazine to learn about all the exciting programs and events happening.

With September just around the corner, we at the Niagara Falls Public Library are excited to once again offer a full slate of Mental Health and Wellness programming to connect you with others and help you feel your best as summer fades away and the days start to get shorter, darker, colder.

Honeymoons and the City of Niagara Falls have gone hand in hand for a very long time, with the first documented Niagara Falls honeymoon occurring in June of 1801. Theodosia Burr (the American vice president’s daughter) and her husband Joseph Alston visited the city on a delayed honeymoon that even included a visit with the famous Mohawk Chief Joseph Brant.

As we enjoy the summer weather, thoughts of cooling off may sometimes cross our minds. Some of us may have fond memories of a few local swimming spots that were once used to beat the summer heat. For more than 35 years, thousands of children and adults made the Cyanamid swimming pool their summer destination of choice.

At the Library, we truly appreciate the outpouring of support for the Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLO) at the Niagara Falls Public Library (NFPL) after the elimination of the ILLO Delivery Service.  We understand the meaningful impact the service has had on many of our customers. As we know how things change in the world, so it does in the Library world.
