Gingerbread Houses, Part II

The sweet and spicy scent flowing among the library stacks at the Oberlin Public Library invites visitors to come in and discover a festive exhibit of gingerbread houses created by students of Donna Shurr, Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Oberlin High School.
In all, 15 gingerbread creations will be on view this holiday season, representing the work of 33 students in Mrs. Shurr’s Foods, Nutrition, and Wellness Classes. This is the 10th year that high school students have made gingerbread houses under the direction of Donna Shurr. The gingerbread display, which is free and open to the public, will begin on Saturday, December 15, 2007 and continue into the New Year. “It’s a unique exercise in team-building,” Shurr explained, “And it includes a good mix of mathematics for the design and construction of the project, as well as artistry in creating a structure entirely from edible materials. The students are learning many different skills while they are having a good amount of fun. There’s great pride in their finished results, too.” The gingerbread project is made possible each year through the generosity of a grant from the Oberlin Schools Endowment Fund.

The Oberlin Public Library is located at 65 South Main Street in Oberlin. For daily hours of operation, please call the Library directly at (440) 775-4790. For other information about the gingerbread display, call the Oberlin Heritage Center at (440) 774-1700 or e-mail members@oberlinheritage.org.
