Real estate to drool about

Real estate to drool about

Come all ye fans of edible homes! The Davenport Public Library is the place to view gingerbread houses of different shapes and sizes. We have castles with ice cream cone towers and cabins with pretzel roofs. See Starburst paths and Tootsie Roll trees.
The Quad City Arts Festival of Trees was kind enough to lend some of their gingerbread houses to be displayed at the Library. The  Fairmount Branch is hosting about a dozen of these houses in their display cases.  You can also see some at Main Street and Eastern Avenue. Pop in between now and January 7th to have a peek at these scrumptious abodes! Sorry, no nibbling allowed.

Stop in to get your items before the heat wave hits!

Stop in to get your items before the heat wave hits!

According to local forecasts it is going to get hot and steamy over the next week. Get a head start so you don’t have to go out later. Stop by the library and get some books and movies, go home, crank up the air, and relax. You probably deserve it!
