Book Character Pumpkin Display and Contest

Display of pumpkins and book character stuffed animals and cutouts

For the month of October, the Hattie Gaines Wilson Youth Services Department of Switzer Library is hosting a Book Character Pumpkin Display and Contest.

Gather the family together and decorate a pumpkin to look like your favorite book character! Tip: Decorate the outside only, without carving, to keep your pumpkin from rotting quickly! Search Google and Pinterest for ideas.

Bring your decorated pumpkins to the children's department for display, beginning on October 8th. Pumpkins will be displayed throughout the library until October 22. On this date, all pumpkins will be gathered in the children's department for judging by local dignitaries. After that, they may be picked up for you to enjoy in your home!

Please call 770-528-2331 if you have any questions.
