The FC Library Edible Book Festival is modeled after the first International Edible Book Festival founded by librarian Judith Hoffberg and author-artist Beatrice Coron in 2000 as a way to “unite bibliophiles, book artists and food lovers to celebrate the ingestion of culture and its fulfilling nourishment.” Libraries worldwide celebrate books at this fun springtime festival.

Winners will be selected for the following award categories:

  • Most creative
  • Student best – exclusive to students
  • Healthiest

Student winners will receive a $25 gift certificate good at various retail stores. Departments and clubs that win will get a premium-quality frameable achievement certificate to potentially display in their common areas (along with bragging rights).
