Charlotte Zietlow donates 500 cookbooks to Ivy Tech Bloomington’s library


Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington received a donation of 500 cookbooks from Charlotte Zietlow in 2018. Ivy Tech held a dedication event on Friday, Aug. 3 in the Joan Olcott Library. The collection will be used by Ivy Tech culinary and hospitality students and is available to the community.

Ivy Tech students in the library technical assistant program helped label and catalog the books, which are now available for reading and checking out.

“We are thrilled to accept Charlotte’s offer to house the collection,” said Susie Graham, executive director of development at Ivy Tech Bloomington. “Charlotte’s generous, 500-volume gift represents a lifetime of travel, cooking adventures, and enjoying good food with friends and family.”

Ivy Tech Bloomington’s Joan Olcott Library is located on the main campus at 200 Daniels Way, in the Cook Pavilion.
