Halloween Week Programming

Here’s our programming for the rest of this week (weather permitting, we’re keeping our fingers crossed):

  • We’re having our regular Story Time with Ms. Sherri on Wednesday, October 30th at 10 am.
  • We’ll be handing out candy at the library from 3 to 4:45 pm on Thursday the 31st for Halloween
  • We’re also closing an hour early on the 31st for Halloween, at 5 pm.
  • Don’t forget to vote on one of the amazing pumpkins if you stop by! They’re on display all around the children’s area.

Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Decorate a pumpkin as your favorite children’s book character!

Paint it, Dress it, accessorize it … but NO CARVING!

Current library card holders may enter a pumpkin as an individual or family. (No more than one per person, please.)

Pumpkins will be accepted at the Children’s Help Desk from Monday, Oct. 21st through Saturday, Oct. 26th during regular Library hours.

Voting will take place on Oct. 28th – 30th. Any current patrons may vote, so invite your family and friends to come to the Library to vote for your pumpkin!

Winners will receive a phone call on Oct. 31st.  

Pumpkins must be picked up by noon on Nov. 6th, or they will be discarded.

Have a question? See us at the Children’s Help Desk at Your Carthage Public Library!
