Event Description

Come pick up your own mini pumpkin for our annual PUMPKIN DECORATING contest! You'll have one week to turn your pumpkin into an amazing work of art or humor based on your favorite literary characters, books or stories. Carve it, paint it, cover it with glitter or fabric or googley eyes and return it to the Edmond Library in time for voting. For kindergarten through twelfth grade (school-age) ONLY.

We can only guarantee one kit per registrant. If you have multiple students needing a kit, please register them individually to ensure that kits are appropriately distributed. Do not use the Special Notes section to add additional registrants.

Kits are one per registrant and can be picked up at Edmond Library from Tuesday, October 11th through Sunday, October 16th at the Children's desk or via Curbside pickup, which begins at 1pm daily. Registered customers must pick up kits by Sunday at 5 PM or call the library at (405) 341-9282 to make alternate pick up arrangements as any remaining kits will be made available to waitlisted customers on Monday, October 17th.
