The Edible Book Festival is an event held on or around April 1 worldwide. This is the university’s third and largest festival yet and is sponsored by the University Libraries and the Co-op.

Most of the artists who contributed creations for the venue are graduate students in the Masters of Library Sciences Program or employees of the university’s libraries.

Digital Librarian Eric Cartier brought the event with him when he moved to College Park from the University of Texas three years ago. “[I] arrived here and couldn’t believe it didn’t occur,” Cartier said.

“It’s a great outreach opportunity, I think,” he said. “We’re engaging with the university community and [saying] libraries are here as a resource for you, and we’re fun. We have a sense of humor.”
