Stuffed Animal Sleepover

Have you ever wondered what your stuffed animals are doing when you’re not around? We’ll help you find out!

Children can come into the Eaton Branch Library on Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 6:30 p.m. to hear a story, have a nighttime snack, complete a craft, and let their stuffed animal spend the night at the library!

The next day, children can pick up their animal and a book of all their friend’s adventures. Children of all ages can attend dressed in their pajamas.

*Make sure to not bring the animal your child sleeps with, as it will be at the library all night*
