Stuffed animal sleepover at library next Tuesday

Next Tuesday, June 16, is one of the most popular events of the summer for our younger patrons.

It’s the annual stuffed animal sleepover, when you bring your stuffed friends to the library at 6 p.m. to enjoy a fun storytime with you and then you leave them behind to spend the night. If you don’t want to leave your friend behind, that’s OK, too. We’ll see what kind of trouble the animals get into this year after you go home and the library is closed.

In past years, they have done a lot of climbing and getting into places they shouldn’t. They’ve also been known to make photocopies of their butts. Sometimes they check out books to themselves. You never know what will happen until the big night.
