Summer vacations are over, and the fall programming season has begun at the Grandview branch. Every month we have programs for literally all ages, from babies to adults, and every age in between. I'm not sure everyone knows about the programs we offer for adults. At the library, we believe people should never stop learning and we like to offer as many different opportunities for learning as we can at every age, including adults.

Knitting, spinning, plastic canvas, beading, and sewing were represented. We shared some great information about sources for materials and places to shop.

Would you like to learn about food garnishing and presentation? Can the way food is arranged actually affect the flavor of the food? Bill Phillips, Culinary Institute of America Chef/Instructor says, “Indeed it can.” He also emphasizes that from a psychological point of view, presentation clearly affects one’s perception of flavor. He teaches a system of guidelines called BUFF. B is for balance. U is for unity. F is for focal point. F is for flow.
