Edible Book Contest

Beanball book and cake
Saturday, October 7th

Do you love books so much you can taste them? Then enter the Willmar Public Library Edible Book Contest. Each food creation must be at least 75% edible (though we will not be eating any of these books; they will only be displayed). Your entry needs to refer to a well-known book that can be recognized by your design. It can be a pun or reference a book character or theme. The idea is to have fun and to be creative. See complete rules here. Registration forms can be picked up at the Library or download here and must be returned to the Library by Wednesday, October 4th. Submit your own entry to be judged, or just stop by, enjoy refreshments, and cast your ballot for the winner in the People’s Choice category.

Willmar Seed Library
Willmar Seed Library

The Willmar Seed Library is a collection of seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow at home. At the end of the season, you can let a few plants ‘go to seed’ and return the collected seeds to the library. The seed library is located near the Information Desk at the Willmar Public Library and is open during regular library hours.
How to use the Seed Library:

  1. Fill out a Membership Form and turn it in at the Information Desk.
  2. Choose up to 5 seed packets per week.
  3. Check out your seed selections.
  4. Plant at home & enjoy!
  5. Use a Return Envelope to bring in saved seeds.
