Local residents can show off their artistic skills and help the Linton Public Library raise money at the same time with the Pumpkin Decorating contest. "The library wants to invite people to celebrate the season in a fun and creative way," Library Director Jamie Tyner explained. Each entry will be numbered with a corresponding jar and patrons vote on the entries by dropping change in the jars. Each cent will be counted as a vote. Tyner noted patrons can vote as many times as they would like. The proceeds from the voting will then go to the library to help with the summer reading programs for all ages, and to purchase books for the library.
