The library is hosting a virtual pumpkin decorating contest again this year! All you need is a pumpkin and your imagination to decorate with materials found at home!

Participants can take a photo with their pumpkin and email it to programs@schillerparklibrary.org. The deadline to submit a photo of your creation is Saturday, October 23.
