The year 2016 was the fourth time our library held a Peep Show, in which patrons submit literary dioramas made with Peeps. Some examples are "Mary Peepins," "The Lightening Peep", "Fear and Sugar in Las Vegas", "Off to See the Wizard of Peeps" and "James and the Giant Peep." We accept dioramas for a week or two before they are displayed in our children's department for another couple of weeks for voting. We have several different age categories for the contest. Each winner gets bragging rights and a small prize.
In past years, we have had offered programs during the submission period when people could come in to make their dioramas; during these programs, we would supply the Peeps and craft supplies. However, these programs were not well attended, so we didn't have one this year.
There's literary gold in those sweet little marshmallow chicks. Think: "James and the Giant Peep."
