Special Events


Edible Book Festival

Wed 9/3 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us in two of our favorite pastimes: reading and eating delicious food!

To celebrate the end of our summer reading challenge for adults and teens, we’re inviting everyone to come in to the library to judge the best entries from staff in our Edible Book Festival. We’ll be serving up edible creations themed on books, and you decide who wins the day. Categories will include funniest or punniest, most delicious, and best in show.

VIEWING starts at 4:00pm.

TASTING starts at 5:30pm.

VOTE at any time.

WINNERS announced at 6:30pm.
