Stuffed Animal Sleepover

It was an evening full of adventure for furry friends at the library on November 2. Children dropped off their favorite stuffed animals for a sleepover that included fun and mischievous activities such as watching a movie, playing in the book drop and even ordering a pizza. The kids came back Saturday morning to pick up their cuddly creatures, eat breakfast together and watch a slideshow of all the fun from the night before. The morning wrapped up with time for the kids and their friends to cuddle up with a good book before heading home.
