Three gingerbread houses sit and await more entries as part of the Carnegie Library’s holiday program. Families dropped in either Monday afternoon or throughout the day Thursday to decorate pre-constructed houses with candy and icing for entry in a contest. The competition was for children aged toddler to teen, and houses will be displayed through Dec. 14 where visitors can pick their favorites. (Photo by Stephanie Ujhelyi)

Leah Balsar and 9-year-old Lucas visited the Carnegie Library in East Liverpool Thursday morning to build their perfect gingerbread house as part of a family drop-in craft held as part of the children’s holiday program. Each child took a pre-constructed gingerbread house, which appeared to be made of graham crackers and hot glue by personnel, and used candy as well as icing to decorate it. Houses will be kept and displayed through Dec. 14, where library visitors can vote on their favorite.
