Friends of the Medway Library will hold its annual Gingerbread Festival on Saturday, December 16th in the library’s Cole Room. Children of all ages are invited to show off their creativity by decorating their very own mini gingerbread houses. Admission is one bag of candy to share.
There will be two sessions, each limited to 65 children. Beginning Nov. 24th, sign up for the 10 a.m. or the 11:30 a.m. time slots online via the Medway Library website. Space is limited for this very popular event, but a waiting list will be available.
Last year, the Cole Room was full of children having a wonderful time creating colorful houses using a wide range of candies, ranging from licorice to snowcaps, gumdrops to candy canes, chocolate to peppermints. The biggest challenge is to avoid eating the decorations.
During November and December, be sure to visit the special Friends of the Medway Library Ongoing Sale opposite the circulation desk. There are “like-new” books and games for adults and children, including special holiday cookbooks, craft books/kits, all perfect for gifts. Items are added almost every day. And be on the lookout for the Winter Beach Reads Cart beginning January.
