Pumpkin Fever At The West U Library
Halloween spirit is creeping into the West University Branch Library over the next couple weeks.
On Wednesday at 3:15 p.m., library staff invite residents to bring their children to decorate small pumpkins with markers. The event is for kids ages 5 to 12, and the library will supply the materials.
Families may want some prep time for another pumpkin event the library is hosting on Oct. 26. Residents should carve a Halloween pumpkin and drop it off at the library between 10 and 11 a.m. Customers will judge the spooky vegetables throughout the day, and the library will announce the winners at the beginning of a party that lasts from 5 to 7 p.m. The first place prize is a Barnes and Noble gift card, and the library will serve pumpkin-based foods and ice cream to all attendees.
