NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH DAY

National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is observed annually on April 12th.  Listed in a reader’s opinion poll, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are among one of the top comfort foods in the United States.

According to food historians, cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food, enjoyed across the world in many cultures.  The United States modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available. Originally it was made as an open-faced sandwich.

United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are versatile thanks to the ability to mix and match cheeses, bread, and seasonings.  Adding sauteed vegetables or herb-infused oils can elevate this simple comfort food to a whole other level.

NATIONAL BOOKMOBILE DAY

National Bookmobile Day is an annual event observed each April.  On this day, we honor the access to information and resources our nation’s bookmobiles make available to our communities and the professionals who work diligently to provide these services. For more than 100 years bookmobiles have brought a library to those that otherwise may not have access to one.

Bookmobiles are mobile libraries designed to travel from neighborhood to neighborhood.  They hold a variety of books, periodicals and usually run on a schedule.  Many have computer access and check out books much like a local library. Books can be returned on the next scheduled stop or at the associated library.
