Pumpkin Decorating Contest
Adults, kids, families and even groups are encouraged to enter our Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest!

Official rules are available at the Forsyth Public Library. Pumpkins must be received by 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22. Voting begins on Monday, Oct. 24 and continues until Thursday, Oct. 27 at 5 p.m. when votes will be tallied and winners awarded.

Come be a part of the fun as Story Time continues at the library this fall! Story Time is for children ages 3-5 and their caregivers and is held on Friday mornings at 10 a.m. Siblings are welcome, too, and you don’t even have to sign up in advance. Just drop on in for any of our upcoming fun fall themes: Fire Prevention (Oct. 14); Owls (Oct. 21); and be sure to wear your costume on Oct. 28 as we celebrate Halloween!

Parents, caregivers and their young children (ages 0-3) are encouraged to attend Baby TALK times at the library. Baby TALK provides children and parents with social interaction and positive parenting strategies. Sessions include simple rhymes, stories, dancing and play time. Baby TALK meets every Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
