Stuffed animals are invited to the library on February 16 for a special sleepover party JUST FOR THEM! Each child may bring a stuffed animal to the library on Tuesday afternoon between 2:30 and 4:30 pm.  After your pal checks in with Miss Sara, they will spend a fun-filled night in the library!  We promise to feed your stuffed animal a nutritious dinner, read him or her lots of stories, and tuck them in for bed before midnight!  You can come back and pick them up on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 pm, when you can learn about all of the adventures that Miss Sara and the stuffed animals had together. Note to parents: please send an animal that can spend the whole night – perhaps not the favorite lovey that cannot be parted with… For ages 4 and up.  Registration is required.
