Throughout the month of October, children can participate in a pumpkin scavenger hunt at the Library! 12 paper pumpkins are hidden in the children’s area wearing interesting costumes for Halloween. Find all 12 pumpkins, fill out the sheet “What will pumpkin be for Halloween?” and turn it in to the service desk. All correct entries will be placed in a random drawing for a new book. Entry sheets can be found in the children’s area and on the display easel near the service desk!
