Libraries to host ‘gingerbread house’ events

Several locations of the Portage Co. Library will be holding a special gingerbread house party for youngsters and their families this month.

Children ages 2 through 12 will craft their own “gingerbread house” using graham crackers and other edibles. Supplies will be provided by the library but space is limited, so registration is required.

The event will be held at the Plover library on Thursday, Dec. 19 at 4:30 p.m., and again on Friday, Dec. 20 at 10:30 a.m. The Plover library can be reached at 715-341-4007.
