Book Character Pumpkin Contest

Thanks to all of our families for submitting such amazing entries for our first Book Character Pumpkin contest! We had 187 entries in all. That's a lot of pumpkins. Congratulations to all of the artists who created a book character pumpkin and brought it to the library. This contest was a huge hit and I hope we can do it again!
