Discover plentiful pumpkins and hordes of gourds by the Mertz Library Building and Haupt Conservatory Plaza, and keep an eye out for displays of whimsical scarecrows throughout the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden.

Peek inside a pumpkin and learn more about this fall fruit. Read an autumn tale from the book box or have a book read to you during story time at 2:30pm on weekends. Pot up your own festive fall plant to take home. Create your own mini self portrait tapestry inspired by the work of multidimensional artist Ebony G Patterson.

Weekdays, 1:30–5:30pm
