Maybe you could have a friendly competition. Kits are limited so call the library and reserve one for you and every member of your family. Do not forget to send us a picture to cstrong@alexandria.lib.oh.us or share your masterpiece on the library Facebook page for a chance to win our gingerbread contest.
