The Larry J. Ringer Library in College Station teamed up with Texas A&M libraries to host the 4th annual Edible Book Festival on April 1st and got a wonderful write up and video in local media. Check it out!

Recently, CTLS staff member Katelyn Patterson attended the Austin Edible Book Fest. Watership Upside-Down, an upside down chocolate raspberry cake, took home Best in Show.

These are fun events that encourage creativity and, in some cases, engineering! Please let us know if you hosted one at your library!
