On November 15, 2014 a Storybake and Silent Auction will be held at the Ulysses Philomathic Library. The event begins at 10:00 am until 2:00 pm with live music, live art, face painting, popcorn, and slushies! This family-oriented, fun event is free to attend and open to the public.
The Storybake is a contest to create a creative, literary-themed, and delicious cake. Ideas include representing a title, character, or theme from a favorite book. The contest features 2 age groups: 14 and under and 15 and older. Interested participants in the Storybake may visit the circulation desk at the library for an application; the first 10 may enter the contest. Winners will be decided by voting in the form of raffle tickets for sale. There will be 1 winner in each age group, and the cakes are raffled off at the conclusion of the contest.
The Silent Auction will begin the week before the event and continue on the 15th. Winners will be announced around 1:45. Items to bid include a weekend at a lake cottage, gift certificates at local vendors, handmade items from local craftspeople, works of art from local artists, and more.
