Area children are invited to a family pumpkin painting event at the Rodman Branch Library on Oct. 16. Children can visit the Branch Library on that day between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. to pick out a pumpkin and paint it during the make and take activity. The library will provide the pumpkins, paint and other decorations for the kids to use. For more information, call 330-821-1313. The Friends of Rodman Library support this program.
