Stuffed Animal Sleepover PDF Print


At our recent "Stuffed Animal Sleepover" program at the the library, we celebrated the favorite stuffed friends of our youngest patrons.  Rabbits, dogs, and teddy bears of all colors and sizes were guests at our library. Families enjoyed a story and then tucked their favorite stuffed friends into bed.  You wouldn't believe the things our new animal friends did when the library closed for the night!

Visit our Flickr set for some eye-popping pictures of the stuffed animal library takeover.
