The Literary Pumpkin Patch Returns to Stahl

Stahl Library is celebrating the fall season with a literary pumpkin patch. Decorate a pumpkin as your favorite storybook character.


  • Pumpkins cannot be carved or punctured.
  • Do not use spray paint on the pumpkin (it gradually dissolves the pumpkin).
  • One pumpkin per student.
  • Acrylic paint and permanent markers work best. Gluing items to the pumpkin is also a great option.
  • You may bring your pumpkin to the library starting Monday, October 26th.
    The pumpkin must be smaller than a basketball.
  • Participation is optional. This is not a contest.
  • Pumpkins must be picked up by Friday, October 30th at the end of the school day.
