Residents have until Sept. 15 to submit family recipes for a community cookbook, the proceeds from which will go to support the New Ipswich Library.

The cookbook, being put together by the Friends of the New Ipswich Library as a fundraiser, will be released this fall, and organizers are hoping for about 80 recipes across different meal categories.

Residents who would like to contribute a recipe can send the recipe and a brief note about where the recipe came from or why it is important to their family to Sarika Rainey at sarika.rainey@gmail.com. The Friends of the New Ipswich Library are particularly looking for family recipes that have been handed down, or recipes that reflect the region’s large circle of Finnish and French-Canadian roots.

Cookbooks will be available at the New Ipswich Library’s Small Business Saturday event in November and other events throughout the fall.

Any residents interested in joining the Friends of the New Ipswich Library can contact Shelly Zinsmeister at shellycasilio@hotmail.com.
