Whether yours is tucked away in a cupboard or still in the box, it’s time to take out your electric pressure cooker and put it to use. Join chef Liz Barbour for a cooking class that will help take the mystery out of this amazing, time saving kitchen tool. Liz will demonstrate 2 recipes that you can recreate at home.

The Amesbury Public Library will be undergoing repairs to a portion of the main floor ceiling beginning Wednesday, January 2. In order to safely accommodate this construction a section of the Library will need to be cleared and cordoned off to staff and patrons. Unfortunately, this means we will be without use of our public internet computers. Computers have been packed up and stored therefore, we have no internet access computers during the construction project. You may visit one of our great neighboring libraries if you need computer access (Salisbury, Newburyport, or Merrimac).
Thank you for your patience as the Library works through these much needed safety repairs. All hours will be subject to change during construction. Please visit our Facebook page or our website for updates regarding hours.
