COVID-19 Test Kit Update: Test kits are currently available at CCPL Headquarters, Eldersburg, Exploration Commons, Finksburg, Mount Airy, North Carroll, Taneytown and Westminster. Supplies are limited so please check back for updates.
Exploration Commons Teaching Kitchen provides the community with creative and educational ways to connect through food.
Together we engage in experiences, programs, and hands-on classes to gain skills and confidence in the kitchen, both personally and professionally. We provide fundamental cooking classes, nutrition and health education, and workforce development opportunities for everyone in the community.
Staff and guest presenters encourage curiosity of new cooking techniques and global cuisines to cultivate positive food experiences. We highlight accessible and affordable foods so participants feel empowered to recreate the recipes at home.
We create programs to serve community members of all ages and local organizations. We foster respect of others and all food cultures by providing diverse and inclusive instruction.
One registration fee per family, up to four family members. For families with children ages 6 and up; children must be accompanied by an adult.
This program is supported by the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grants for Libraries an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
