Put your detective skills to the test this December! Come to the library and see if you can find Gingeremy Clark, a wanted gingerbread man who escaped from the oven. He was last seen hiding somewhere in the library and is wearing a disguise… If you find our gingerbread fugitive, talk to a report your findings to a librarian for a sweet treat!
