Our gingerbread folks are home for the holidays, but they need a place to live. Give them a hand by building a home out of anything that can be eaten. Create your edible structure, then enter the contest and send us a photograph. OPTIONAL: you may also bring your entry to the library to add to our display! Online entry form will be available beginning November 26.
