Edmonton Mayor Amargit Sohey believes that a public kitchen will create a sense of belonging among Edmonton residents. Libraries were for him an “inclusive, welcoming and warm place” and he hopes that this will also be the case for the residents.
The kitchen will also be provided for people who want to start their own business, but do not have the necessary space and resources. Cultural communities will also be able to share their culinary practices.
The library offers a guided virtual tour of its new kitchen on March 19 at 10 a.m. Other events planned from this date.
