The Pumpkin Decorating Contest Has Begun!

Pumpkin time is here again and, to celebrate everybody's favorite member of the Cucurbitaceae family, we're holding a pumpkin decorating contest!

In partnership with the Friends of the Fresno County Public Library, starting October 9 we cordially invite our customers (that's anyone with an FCPL card!) to spread seasonal joy and enter to win by sharing pictures of themselves with the masterpieces they've created on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter, using the hashtags #fresnolibrary and #fcplpumpkincontest.

It's easy to enter.

Step 1: Go to, for all contest rules.

Step 2: Have fun!

Step 3: Submit a picture of you and your pumpkin masterpiece!

We will be accepting decorated and/or carved pumpkins in two categories:

"Book Lovers"/Fiction-inspired 

Pay tribute to a favorite book character, recreate a key scene or element from a story or poem, or show your love for a favorite genre, craft your dream reading nook/library, with a pumpkin (or multiple)--as long as it has to do with books, libraries, or reading, it fits!

Anything Goes!

Exercise your imagination and design the coolest, most original pumpkin you can think up! Pumpkins in this category do not have to be book or library-related.

We can't wait to see what you all create!
