WESTFIELD – There are several great dining options in downtown Westfield, but perhaps none as unexpected as the Athenaeum.

The library has bolstered its offerings with a variety of cookbooks, plenty of free workshops, and even kitchen utensils to borrow to help prepare nutritious meals. It’s all part of a new healthy eating and wellness program using a $10,000 grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners last year to create culinary literacy programs and resources.
