What Can We Learn from Community Cookbooks?

Read about community cookbooks in the Globe and Mail and discover the origins of the butter tart and Nanaimo bar.  The local charitable groups and organizations, who published the majority of these books, would write about the availability of ingredients and technologies of the time in their books.

UFV Library has its own special collection of community and local cookbooks.  The Newman Western Canadian Cookbook Collection was established in 2015 and reflects the culinary heritage of the western Canadian provinces and two northern territories.  Discover more about the Newman collection in our research guide and online exhibit.

Human Library Event, Chilliwack, Wednesday, March 15

For the first time, UFV library is participating in the Human Library Initiative. UFV Library’s event will be held in the atrium of the Canada Education Park campus, just outside the Chilliwack library, on Wednesday, March 15, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.


A human library seeks to promote understanding and bust stereotypes. Typical human library “books” might focus on topics like racism, non-traditional roles, mental illness, single parenthood, LGBTQ experiences or religion.
To read more about our books, not all of whom may be available for the human library event, check our website: http://www.ufv.ca/library/exhibits--events/human-library-display-and-event/.
To stay in touch, watch the library’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UFVlibrary/.


To register as a reader, please call the Chilliwack library at 604-795-2824 after March 7.
