During the month of October, the South Sioux City Public Library is celebrating literacy with a Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Stop by in October during library's regular hours and get a form, choose a book character and decorate with your family at home (NO CARVING). We will display the pumpkins in our display cases in the entry hall until October 27 when you can take them home. Winners will receive a free book for their child's home library. There will be age brackets per individual pumpkin decorators and a family bracket.
