What is in my MOUTH? — Monday, January 11 @ 7PM (Teens)
So…. nobody’s traveling the world right now. BUT we can learn about distant places and cultures through food and trivia from home! Take your tongue on a trip to a different country each month as we explore the world by asking: What is in my mouth???
The library will provide free snack foods from a different part of the world each month, and host a live, online tasting party on the second Monday of each month with facts about the featured country, trivia, and the chance for participants to rate their mystery snack.
Sign up to reserve your snack and get info about the next online tasting party. We’ll let you know when new snacks are available to pick up from the library each month. Snacks will be bagged so you won’t know what you got until it’s time to taste together. That means folks with food sensitivities will need to proceed with EXTREME CAUTION. Intended for middle and high school ages.

Help maintain our Community Pantry
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the library’s Community Pantry! So far, we have been able to keep the pantry stocked with donations from our neighbors. The pantry is being used, which means we are meeting a need in our community. If those who are able to contribute continue to donate nonperishable food items, basic toiletries, and baby supplies (find a full list here), we can continue to help our neighbors who are in need. This is one more way we can continue to share the love in Gibsonville.
