August 22-23: National Lentil Festival

It’s August – the month when little and big folks head to school and when most folks on the Palouse head to
our fair city to join in the National Lentil Festival celebration!  There’s always much to enjoy regardless of one’s age. You can savor samples at the legendary lentil cook-off and then shed some of those calories by participating in the Tase T Lentil 5K Run. Is there a young child in your life?   Take them to Reaney Park to have fun in the Lentil Land Kids’ Area. Young and old alike can line the streets of Pullman to watch the National Lentil Festival Parade.  And when the parade is over? Make plans to head to Neill Public Library to find some great lentil cookbooks and find out about the history of our amazing local area.  If you haven’t enjoyed the beautiful DVD entitled O Palouse!, use your library card to check it out soon.  This month and every month, stop by and see us often!

Children's Librarian
