Stuffed Creatures @ Rincon Valley

Yesterday 20 teens participated in the Stuffed Creatures event at the Rincon Valley library.  Some teens created ugly dolls, some created cute dolls and one boy created pacman!  It was a lot of fun!  Here are some of the finished stuffed creatures dolls made yesterday.

Pumpkin Carving Contest @ Petaluma, Healdsburg & Rincon Valley

Teens at the Petaluma, Central, Rincon Valley and Healdsburg branch carved pumpkins last week and yesterday.  The librarians took pictures of the pumpkins and the public are voting on their favorite pumpkin.  The teens were creative in their designs and pumpkin names.  In Petaluma teens named their pumpkins all sort of things like Jacka, A Trip to the Dentist and Cat got Mouse.  Below are a sampling of the pumpkins carved at the branches.  This event was a lot of fun but messy!  Stop by Petaluma, Central, Rincon Valley or Healdsburg to vote for your favorite pumpkin!
