Rhinelander District Library Giving Away Pumpkins and Comic Books


The Rhinelander District Library is looking for people with creative pumpkin carving ideas.

It got a donation of pumpkins from the local Walmart.

The pumpkins are being given away to people to decorate. Then people will bring them back to sit on the front steps of the library through Friday.

“It’s a different way to get the community involved and coming to their library. This is another thing do for our community and then the community decorates the library for Halloween,” said library director Virginia Roberts.

You can just stop by and pick one up or call ahead they’ll arrange a curbside pick-up.

The pumpkins will be on display through Friday. Then people can pick their pumpkins back up.

The library is also giving away free comic books.

Free Comic Book Day usually falls on the first Saturday in May.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, that didn’t happen this year. The library still has a lot of comic books to giveaway.

“The vocabulary starts at the 8th grade. My kids cut their teeth on these comic books, my husband and I read comic books. They have really beautiful artwork in many cases and some unusual artwork. They bring about interesting stories and ideas,” said Roberts.

Teen and adults can pick up a bundle of four comics.

There’s also comic books for kids available in the children’s section of the library.

Curbside pick-up is also available. Call (715) 365-1070 to arrange pick-up.
