The Kitchen is located on the south east corner of the second floor of the Stanley A. Milner Library, and is only accessible through the library entrances. The Kitchen’s windows overlook Centennial Plaza and the Citadel Theatre.
Our goal is to create learning opportunities to help increase knowledge and grow interest in food literacy and nutrition, and to teach skills that would be transferable into a home kitchen environment. A variety of cooking, baking and food related courses at entry and intermediate levels will be offered in The Kitchen (either directly through the Library or through partner organizations).
The Kitchen hosts a variety of activities including basic and intermediate classes, meal preparation workshops, nutrition workshops, knife skills classes, and a variety of demonstrations. Learn more about Kitchen classes and events.
