The Chevy Chase Library will be having an Edible Book Contest on Saturday, October 2, at 1 p.m.

What is an Edible Book Contest?

An edible book contest is a fun and creative way to celebrate reading. Express yourself through a literary culinary creation: whether it's an edible version of your favorite book’s cover, a yummy pun on its title, or a reference to a scene or character.

What are the contest guidelines?

1. Your edible book creation is...edible!
2. Your edible book is family-friendly.
3. Your creation has something to do with a book.
4. You disclose the ingredients of your edible book.

So, when should I be there?

1 p.m. – The judging begins.

Anything else going on that day?

While the Judges are deciding, learn how to make fondant.

Hi all, it’s me again… Ava. Remember me? The Belly Rub Queen? Oh, I do like to have my belly rubbed and kissed and patted. I also like treats and the library has the best treats ever! So between the belly rubs, the treats, and the kids… I was in heaven! The library is fast becoming my favorite place to be. Trust me. I am a PAL dog and have been to a lot of places.

Hello. My name is Happy and, yes, I am happy. I am eager to please and not one to make a fuss. I go with the flow, you know! I heard some stories and enjoyed some gentle pats. I take my job as a PAL dog very seriously.
