Literary Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Oct. 10-23

Note: This event has already passed.

As part of Fantober, families are invited to join our Literary Pumpkin Patch Decorating Contest at Book Patch Children’s Library and McChord Library.

Here’s what to do:
• Pick up your pumpkin at either library Oct. 9–22 while supplies last.
• Decorate your pumpkin to represent a literary character from a book (for example, Skippyjon Jones or Peppa Pig). Various media may be used, such as paint, markers, colored paper, felt, glue and glitter. Due to spoilage, pumpkins shouldn’t be carved!
• Return your decorated pumpkin during regular business hours the week of Oct. 18–23 with the title of the book and character your pumpkin depicts. If we have the book, we’ll place the book next to the pumpkin on display.
• After we select the winners, we’ll announce them on our Facebook page at Friday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m.
• One winner in each age category will be announced; each winner receives a $25 gift card. Age categories are adults ages 18 and older, teens ages 13–17, kids ages 6–12 and toddlers ages 5 and younger.
