The Hamilton Public Library and Hamilton Village Real Estate are excited to offer the Literary Pumpkin display and contest again this year! You’re invited to decorate a small pumpkin to look like your favorite book character! Feel free to work alone, with your friends, family, or co-workers to decorate a pumpkin. Please do not bring any carved, cut, or hollowed pumpkins. These “literary pumpkins” should be brought to the Hamilton Public Library during regular Library hours between Saturday, Oct. 14, and Saturday, Oct. 21. Voting for People’s Choice Awards will take place the following week, and the winners will be announced on Halloween! Pumpkins should then be picked up from the Library no later than Monday,
Nov. 6.
