Fall is here…the days are shorter, the foliage is turning vibrant shades of red and amber, and it is finally pumpkin season! Stop by the P.D. Brown branch and pick up an educational Take & Make kit that will explain the science and history of pumpkins, the life cycle of a pumpkin, and interesting pumpkin facts. Each kit will include instructions and supplies to make your own gorgeous craft masterpiece. 

Kits can be picked up during regular business hours at the P. D. Brown branch. Curbside pickup is also available upon request. To make a curbside request, please call the P. D. Brown branch at 301-645-2864. One hour advance notice is needed for curbside kit requests.

After enjoying your kit, please a few moments to fill out our online Program Survey (a mobile-friendly version can be found here), so we may better serve you.

We encourage participants to share their finished artwork by sending a photo to: pdbrownref[at]ccplonline[dot]org!
