Spring is finally here in Cheshire....well at least according to the calendar! I'm really hoping we'll finally see true signs of spring, without any more of this winter weather coming through our way and messing things up! I guess we'll have to wait and see. At least we have some great activities and events taking place these last ten days of March that you won't want to miss. So get out your calendar, phone or mini tablet and plug these dates in:

Cheshire Public Library announces its first ever EDIBLE BOOK FESTIVAL for patrons of all ages!
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Contact: Nicole Dolat
Location: Mary Baldwin Room Main Level
What exactly is the Edible Book Festival? It's an opportunity for people of all ages to test their creativity and love of both books and food in making fun displays that will be seen & judged by a panel of people and official judges. The only rules are that entries must be based on a book (any book will do!) and they must be made of completely edible items (you can eat the whole thing afterwars!) Entries will be accepted & judged in 3 Categories:
⦁ Child (up to age 12) ⦁ Teen (ages 13-19) ⦁ Adult (ages 20+)
A three-person panel of impartial judges, will evaluate all entries based on: ⦁ overall design ⦁ creativity ⦁ how well entries represent their noted books
At the end of the event, prizes will be awarded in each age-group category. The basic timeline for the day will be: ⦁ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm participants will drop off entries at the library ⦁ 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm the panel of judges will privately evaluate the entries
⦁ 1:30 pm the public can begin viewing the entries ⦁ 2:30 pm the winners will announced!
Registration will need to be done in-person at the Children's desk at the library so that we can make sure all participants receive a packet of information for the event. For any questions, contact Children's Librarian Nicole Dolat (203-272-2245 | email@example.com).
