"I heard about a group that was doing it and I thought it was a great idea and we have to do it here," she said.
For Walker, and other members of the staff, the contest and the week-long celebration of libraries is a chance to remind residents of endless resources and opportunities available through the library.
Films, music, magazines, museum passes, puppets, a telescope, the Nashua Public Library has all sorts of things families can borrow and enjoy.
"And it's nice to have a time when the community and the whole country are celebrating libraries," added Eyman.
But for Walker, who helps people find some of the 650,000 to 700,000 books, CDs, videos and other library resources that residents borrow each year, the edible book contest underscores the role the library plays in Nashua.
