National Ice Cream Month

July 19, 2014 0 comments

I scream … you scream … we all scream … for ice cream!

Yep, it’s that time of year where we celebrate that summertime treat that everyone loves!  While we don't actually have ice cream at the library, we’ve got a few good stories about ice cream, but we also have some really interesting non-fiction books about the history of ice cream, how to make it at home, other recipes to make with it.  You can even learn how milk goes from cow to ice cream in the cone. 

We’re sure you’ll be just as eager to celebrate as we are—especially if you have a big old bowl of ice cream to eat while you’re at it! 

Here are some great ways to celebrate National Ice Cream Month (and National Ice Cream Day on July 20th):

  • Have an ice cream tasting party with different flavors and kinds of ice cream. Let everyone in your family vote on their favorite flavor or combination of flavors.

  • Visit local Richland County shops that sell ice cream, from Dairy Queen and Munchies to Cold Stone Creamery and the Dairy Belle (and many, many more!), and taste the unique variety flavors offered at each location.

  • Read some books—the library has some great ones that you and your family will enjoy!

  • Join in an old fashioned Ice Cream Social, including one on July 19th at the Mayflower Congregational Church in Mansfield.

Enjoy your summer, and keep on screamin’ for ice cream!
