KINGSVILLE TOWNSHIP — Potatoes and paperbacks will be featured Saturday at the Kingsville Public Library, 6006 Academy Ave.

On Oct. 12, Friends of the Kingsville Public Library will hold a baked potato toppings contest for all creative chefs. The top winner will receive a restaurant gift card, while the runner-up will earn a tote and tablet case.

Contest entries will be served 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at a special baked potato lunch. The menu includes two toppings, salad, dessert and beverage. Take-outs will be available.

The potato event coincides with the library’s Harvest Book Sale (10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday) at the Simak Welcome Center across the street. Used books, mums and baked goods will be available. People can also meet local author Meryl Taylor.

Proceeds from the event will assist children’s programming at the library.
