Edible Books Contest

Help us celebrate books in a fun, tasty way during our first-ever Edible Books Contest!

An edible book entry is an edible depiction of a book cover, character or theme. For inspiration, you can go to Google and search for “Edible Books.” You’ll find lots of good ideas to get your creativity flowing!

We will have a kids division (14 and younger) and an adult division, with no entry fees. Prizes will be awarded in each division.

The event will be on Wednesday, July 11, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. All entries will be on display for the public during the event, with winners announced at 7:30 p.m. Members of the public are invited to come admire all the handiwork!

Entry forms are available at the library and are due by Friday, July 6.
