It’s December again, and that means it’s time for the library’s Annual Gingerbread House Contest! We’ve been hosting this contest for so long that we aren’t sure exactly how many years it has been. Start sketching out your dream gingerbread house and get your entry built: delivery begins next Wednesday, December 10.

The 2014 Annual Gingerbread House Contest display will run from Wednesday, December 10 through Tuesday, December 23. Judging happens on Saturday, December 13 at 10:00 AM. For the full contest rules, and to download a registration form, please check the Gingerbread House Contest page.

The gingerbread houses add a big dose of Christmas spirit to the library. We look forward to seeing this year’s contenders! Be sure to stop by the library and check out all the entries.
