Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Pumpkin Decorating Contest
October 1 - 31
(Fun for kids of all ages, up to age 17)

It's October and you know what that means: pumpkins!
Miss April loves "pumpkin time" the best and so Walkertown Branch Library is hosting a pumpkin decorating contest in the month of Pumpkins October.

You can find more information, including rules for entry and how to vote for your favorite pumpkin, by clicking the image above or this link.


Halloween Trick-or-Treat
October 26 - 31
(Fun for kids of all ages, up to age 17)

Halloween this year is on a Saturday, so we'll be celebrating the whole week through!

Come by in costume (even if your costume is your pajamas!) to vote on our pumpkin decorating contest and grab a trick-or-treat grab bag during browsing hours the week of Halloween. Miss April will be at Walkertown Branch Library on Saturday, October 31 in costume, but you know she'll be dressed for the season the entire week.
Our pumpkin curtain will also be available in the kids area as a fun photo backdrop. Maybe Halloween is the perfect time to get a button made for our Buttons and Bright Smiles program.


October 1 - 31
(Fun for tweens and teens, ages 12-17)

TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October. It’s a celebration of teens. This month we are going to host several programs aimed at helping teens learn new skills and fuel their passions in and outside the library.

You can find more information, including all the programs Forsyth County Public Libraries are bringing to you, by clicking the image above or this link.
