Monroe Branch Library

Please stop by the Monroe Branch Library Community Table where you can pick up a free book, or chat with our friendly librarian, Mary Clare. She is the person to ask if you would like a suggestion about a book that might interest you. Find out about special programs available for both children and adults. Our library is a rich neighborhood resource with books, of course, but so much more.

Remember, the Monroe Branch Library is just steps away from the Market at 809 Monroe Avenue, next door to the Monroe YMCA. It is open on Wednesday Market Days until 8:00 PM. You are welcome to drop by either before or after you do your market shopping.

Mashed Potato Skordalia

I have tried a delicious skordalia dip at a Monroe Avenue restaurant but had never seen a recipe for it before coming across this one. I knew that skordalia was delicious, but didn't think that much about how to make it. Now it no longer seems like an exotic foreign recipe to me, but something I could try at home.

Click on the link below and consider bringing skordalia from the restaurant into your own home, too.


The market has always welcomed shoppers in the various State and Federal supplemental nutrition programs. Farmers at our Market accept tokens and some coupons. See the Market-Day supervisor; bring your EBT card.

See USDA SNAP guidelines for more information.
