Program Description

It's Hot Grill Summer! 

Back by popular demand, Traci Howe, owner of The Olive Bin, will provide a fun, at-home experience which will introduce heart-healthy oils and vinegars into your summer meal plans. If you want to learn how to up your grill game and new ways to enjoy summer produce, you won't want to miss this virtual presentation!

The first 50 registrants (one per household, please) will be able to pick up from the The Olive Bin a carefully selected summer sampler kit. Participants will use the kit as they embark on a tasting adventure during a special culinary Zoom program hosted by Traci.

Those interested in taking part in this program without receiving a sampler kit may sign up for the program at bit.ly/bplgrillNOsampler.

Those who successfully register to receive the sampler kit will need to visit The Olive Bin between Friday, June 24-Tuesday, June 28 to pick up the kit. (NOTE: The Olive Bin is closed on Mondays.)

KITS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AT THE OLIVE BIN; KITS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE LIBRARY. 

  • It is not necessary to obtain the sampler kit to enjoy the program. 
  • This program will not be recorded. 
  • If you have the sampler kit, you'll want to have some tasty bread, ice cream, and ice water on hand.

Registration is required and can be completed online below, by phoning 309.590.6168, or by visiting the Adult Services Desk at the Library and registering in person.
