The Struthers Public Library hosted a pumpkin painting event on October 20th to get fellow Struthers residents in the Halloween spirit.

A worker named Shelby at Struthers Library likes to get the party started. She created an event for teens and tweens to do fun activities.

Shelby has worked at the library since February and loves her job.

“The Library has not hosted an event with painting until now; once a month the library would host other fun programs such as storytimes,” says Shelby.

Teens and tweens were able to paint mini pumpkins with glow-in-the-dark paint. Everyone seemed to have a great time.

Shelby strives for creativity for the kids. A decent amount of people attended.

“About 8 teens and tweens came to the pumpkin painting. They used glow-in-the-dark paint with brushes to paint mini pumpkins, and they all had fun,” says the worker.

Teens and tweens only had positive reflections based on the activity; they all had lots of fun.

Shelby had been told that many loved the creative activity, and many wish the library would do events like this more.

Struthers residents didn’t have anything negative to say.

“I think everyone was positive and everyone had fun. It was cool to see the different designs and colors that they painted,” says Shelby.
