WEST AKRON — Autumn began Sept. 22, and several local children found no better way to celebrate the day than a pumpkin-carving event at the Maple Valley Branch of the Akron-Summit County Public Library.

Sisters Morgan Williams, at left, and Madison Williams, both 9, worked together to create their pumpkin, as shown at right bottom.

Halloween-themed events, such as parties and craft classes, will take place at many other library branches this season. For details, go to www.ascpl.org.
