The Friends of White County Public Libraries, as a special fundraiser for a new Cleveland library, is planning to create a cookbook of White County citizens’ recipes. We’d like your recipes, your daughter’s, your mother’s and even your favorite aunt’s recipe. At the bottom of this page is a form to write the recipe on. You can mail it to our PO Box 2003, Cleveland, Ga 30528, or drop it by the library.

If you already have the recipe in your computer in a word document, please send it to our email: friendsowcl@gmail.com. Please put “Recipe” in the subject of your email, and be sure to tell us who the recipe is from.

The cookbook will go on sale in November (in time for Christmas!) for $18. It will have between 300 and 350 recipes in it.

As a way to offset the cost of printing the cookbook, we will sell a limited number of ads AND we will have a special sponsor page listing supporters who are helping to build the new library.

Sponsors will get one of the first copies of the book and their name listed on the sponsor page. The cost of sponsorship is $35 – a $17 donation above the cost of the book, but it’s a small donation that will kickoff the fundraising for our new library.

The city of Cleveland is in the process of renovating the Talon building for its administrative offices, fire and police departments. We are hoping that the new library can be located there as well.

This does not affect the Helen Library. Our Friends still support the Helen location as we always have – it is very special to a lot of people. But the Cleveland library is desperate for more space. We hope this is the first of several fundraising efforts to fund that space.

Whether you’d like to be a sponsor or not – please send us your recipe, either to friendsowcl@gmail.com or to our post office box 2003 in Cleveland. Please consider sponsorship, and send your check for $35 to the post office box with “cookbook sponsor” written in the memo section of the check, your name as you’d like it to appear on the sponsor page and your phone number should we need to get back to you.

Thank you!
