Children tried their hands at construction last week in the Fall City Library’s gingerbread house competition, Dec. 22.
Maggie Wong, librarian and organizer of the event, said she got the idea from a colleague at the Des Moines library who previously did the event with great success.
“We are on winter break and teens need something to do,” Wong said. “Match sugar with a fun activity, that’s golden.”
All of the materials needed for the program were supplied by Friends of Fall City library. Wong hopes the library can become a location where more people go to look for programming like this.
Wong got a resounding “YES” when she asked if participants wanted to do this again next year.
