Come join our pumpkin patch!

      It's October.  The weather is getting a bit cooler.  We don't have frost on the pumpkins yet; but we do have some paper pumpkins that  need decorating.  This month - starting Tuesday, October 2 - we'll have paper pumpkins for children to decorate.    The pumpkins will be at the Kids Information Desk.  We'll also have a few decorating tools such as stick-on eyes, markers, and fun pipe cleaners that the children can use to perk up a pumpkin.  Then they can drop the pumpkin in a special box that we'll have on the desk.  Each day, we'll be putting the pumpkins up on a bulletin board in the Children's Department.  Please help us fill up our pumpkin patch with these festive decorations.
