Bonjour and meow everyone! It is me, Cosmo, the library cat and noted gourmand. I have been thinking about food a lot lately. This might be because the colder weather makes me hungrier or it might be because my librarian friends have put me on a healthy diet. I’m now strictly limited to two meals a day. They insist it is for my own good, but I’m not so sure. 

It turns out I’m not the only one who can get a meal at the library. The Grand County Public Library continues to offer in-person Kids Cafe for anyone under 18, in partnership with the Utah Food Bank. Kids Cafe is open Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 12:30 to 1:30 throughout the school year. During the fall and winter breaks, it’ll be Monday through Saturday from 12:30 to 1:30. These hours have caused a heated debate among the librarians, who can’t decide if the meals should be advertised as “lunch” or “supper”.

Whatever you call the meal, we recently got some new options including chicken tenders and cheese cups, which the children tell me are quite tasty. I’ve offered to share recipes for my personal favorites–Wild Salmon Bits Bourguignon and Turkey Niblets Au Jus–but no takers so far. To each their own!

Come down to the library, enjoy a meal, and help us settle the Great Supper vs. Lunch Debate! You might even catch a glimpse of me if you are very lucky. Bon appétit, mon petit choux!
