With their gumdrop roofs and candy cane fences, making gingerbread houses together creates family time during the holidays, where the merry is in the making!

Barry Askren Branch Library will accept photo entries for its Virtual Gingerbread House Contest from Monday, December 12th through Friday, December 23rd. You do not have to bring in your creation, just send a picture to vaughnan@massillonlibrary.org, or bring a printed photo to the Barry Askren Library. Houses must actually be made by you; no cheating please! There will be two different age groups and prizes: Kids age 12 and under, and ages 13 thru adult. Pictures will be posted both inside the library and on our Facebook page. Library patrons will have 2 weeks to vote for their favorite. Winners will be announced after Christmas.  

For more information or to register, stop by or call the library at 330.879.2113 or log onto the library’s website www.massillonlibrary.org/askren. The Barry Askren Library is located at 1200 Market St. NE, in Navarre and is handicapped accessible.
