Last day to sign up for the THE EDIBLE BOOK PROJECT
The Edible Book Project is a celebration of books through the use of cake!  Participants will create an “edible book” using cake which can be inspired by a favorite book, involve a pun on a famous title, or simply be in the shape of a book.  Edible books will be exhibited in the library Gallery April 14 & April 15.  Photographs of all edible books may appear in an online exhibit and future promotional materials. Sign-up by clicking here.  Include your names and whether or not you will be bringing your own cake or attending the cake decorating project on Sunday, April 13th.
