WHAT'S HAPPENING AT YOUR LIBRARY......  

PUMPKIN DECORATING

Join us for a fun-filled evening with your special "big person" to decorate a pumpkin.  Rules for Decorating:  Pumpkins may not be carved.  You may use push pins to hold something on your pumpkin.  The library will furnish paint, brushes, and a few other decorations for your pumpkin.  We encourage you to bring things from home to make your pumpkin unique such as hats, shoes, feathers, buttons, ribbon, gloves, earrings, etc. When you have finished decorating your pumpkin it will be displayed in the library for the public to enjoy until October 25 when you may stop in to pick it up.  Thank you to Rennhack Orchards Market for donating pumpkins for this event!  Limited space--register soon!  For ages 4+.
