Show off your creativity at this year’s edible books contest on March 28, 2020.

What are edible books?

Edible books are completely edible creations that can look like:

  • a book in form and shape,
  • be inspired by by a book or author,
  • be a pun of a book title,
  • refer to a character in a book,
  • reproduce a book cover,
  • or have something to do with books in general.

How can I join in?

Registration forms with more information may be picked up at the Adult Services office on the 2nd floor.

Entries (and utensils to cut/carve/serve your creation) should be brought to the Red Earth Room, located on the 2nd floor of the library between 10 AM and 12:30 PM.
