National Chocolate Day

chocolate dessertNational Chocolate Day was created by the National Confectioners Association. There are actually 3 National Chocolate Days throughout the year, on July 7th, October 28th and December 28th. We think that’s a great idea – more events to celebrate.

What does Chocolate have to do with an academic library?  GRCC has a terrific culinary collection supporting the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education.  Check out some of the books we have on chocolate!  While you’re at it, take a look at some of new culinary titles added to the collection!
