Fall is a season for fun with the cooler weather, colorful changing of the leaves, and amusing crafts, like carving pumpkins! Local teens from Oak Grove recently showed their pumpkin carving skills at the Extreme Pumpkins carving program. Pictured from left to right: The Headless Horseman, a fire-breathing dragon, a sharp-toothed jack-o-lantern, and a bat flying over a cemetery. What skilled pumpkin artists!

Our storytime kids had a great time making hats from newspapers and then decorating them. They were so proud of them that they even agreed to pose for this picture! Our books centered on hats blowing away, so as they left the building, they were holding on to theirs with all their might.
