Visitors to the Warren County Public Library on July 30 around 11 a.m. or so may just be able to enjoy a sweet treat in addition to checking out or returning books. A local entrepreneur will host a live baking demonstration and will discuss how her she uses her baking talents to help young local students with educational opportunities.
Denise Allen, the owner and baker of Sweet Delights Cookies in Norlina, will share the story behind the creation of her business while encouraging upcoming entrepreneurs with tips, ideas, and strategies for starting a business. The program will be held in the library’s community room.
Sweet Delights was created to provide an opportunity for Allen’s granddaughter to attend college, according to information from Warren County officials.
That vision expanded to the idea that she could provide not just for her granddaughter, but for other children in Warren County as well. She bakes cookies with the goal of assisting educational opportunities within her community. She hopes to encourage, inspire, and most of all help as many at-risk children as she can.
“We are delighted to present this program. I am confident that participants will walk away with an unforgettable, mouth-watering experience. This event will be informational and entertaining,” said Library Director Cheryl Reddish.
