    The library and Sunflour Bakery have partnered to take family bonding time to the next level. These gingerbread kits include a gingerbread house, plus everything you'll need to put together and decorate your creation.

    Due to demand, we are currently limiting kits to one per family.

    Kits are for families with youth 18 years old or under. The kits must be picked up from the library during our regular operating hours. Our staff will email you when kits are ready, sometime during the week of 12/8-12/15. The frosting, cookies, and candy may contain gluten, eggs, and dairy. The kits are nut free, but some candy may be made in a nut environment.
