Photoreport from our 8th Annual Edible Book Festival

Once again Ivy Tech Library made books come to life through amazing creativity and delicious foods. Our 8th Annual Edible Book Festival was an absolute success, entertaining spectators and participants alike. Some pictures made it to the Metro section cover page of the Journal Gazette! Colors, delicious foods, fantastic ideas, smiles and conversations were flowing in the hallways of the Student Life Center for more than three hours. 31 participants included Ivy Tech students and staff, as well as outside businesses and colleges. Have a look at the festivities in the slideshow below. Remember, Ivy Tech library is your on-campus home – for help and resources, a place to rest,  and even entertainment and occasional food is provided free of charge and with a lot of love and care! So next time you pass by the Library, come in and see for yourself. And we hope to see you next year for our Edible Book Festival!
