Oh my gourd, It’s National Pumpkin Day!

That’s right, October 26th is National Pumpkin Day. In a month filled with pumpkin spice treats, and jack-o-lanterns today is the day that we celebrate pumpkins.


You can learn more about pumpkins by visiting the non-fiction section in the YS Department at j 635.62 (that’s the Dewey decimal for pumpkins).

Pinterest vs Reality: Skeleton Hands

This week on Pinterest vs Reality:
Paper skeleton hands!











Halloween is such a fun time to decorate for!
I found this pin for a paper skeleton hand and the picture made it look so easy, I had to try it.

The steps are pretty simple:

1) On a piece of paper, trace your hand with your fingers slightly apart.
2) Cut out hand.
3) Bend fingers where your joints would be (the spots where your fingers bend)
4) Pinch between the joints (as seen in picture).

My hand turned out just as good as the one on Pinterest, don’t you think?

Happy Halloween!

Harry Potter Mania

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was released a couple of months ago in July but never fear Harry Potter fans there is even more to enjoy in the coming months! In a little over a month, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be in theaters. I am totally excited based on the trailer which you can see below:

Did you know that the movie is based on a book? Dive into the world of Harry Potter once more with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (available HERE at the library). If that’s not enough to tide you over until November you can also find out what your patronus is by following the link:

J. K. Rowling announced that her patronus was a heron. Feel free to let us know was yours was in the comments!
