Stuffed Animal Sleepover – Tuesday, 2/20
You can bring your stuffed animal friend to the library anytime between 4 & 7 pm. you can make a nametag for your stuffed animal, so they can make friends with the other stuffed animals. Then you can read a goodnight story and tuck your friend in for the night. What will all these special friends do when the library closed at 8:30?

Your friends can be picked up on Wednesday after 1pm.
