A picture of a gingerbread house set against a white background.  The house has a peaked roof made of frosting, a red licorice door, three windows, two peppermint candies hung like wreaths, and a red-swirled chimney.  Multicolored snowflakes drift down from above.  Red lettering above the house reads "Dearborn Heights Libraries Gingerbread House (On the Road)."  The address of the Caroline Kennedy Library is printed below the picture in smaller red lettering.
