Have you ever wondered what happens in the library at night? Now you have a chance to find out. Children ages 3+ are invited to drop off a stuffed animal for our Stuffed Animal sleepover. Make sure to send a friend who doesn’t need to sleep with you each night. No advanced registration required, just drop off anytime starting Wednesday July 28 or Thursday July 29 between 12 pm-7 pm. Each child will need to fill out a “My Name Is” form and create a nametag for your stuffed friend upon drop off. (Want to prepare these two things at home ahead of time? They can be picked up starting Monday July 26 during open hours.) Then they are all ready for a fun time as they spend the night with us Thursday night. Watch our Facebook page and see all the fun your friend is having at our sleepover. Friday July 30 from 12 pm-7 pm stop in and get your friend and learn about their adventures. Each friend will have a letter, pictures and some goodies to take home.
