The Great Stuffed Animal Sleepover
Nov 1 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The Great Stuffed Animal Sleepover: It’s the one night of the year when Wakarusa Public Library allows entry to critters of all shapes and sizes….as long as they’re stuffed and housebroken. On Tuesday November 1, the WPL is inviting all children to bring their most loved stuffed animals to the ‘Great Stuffed Animal Sleepover’. Come drop off your stuffed critters between 5 – 7:30 p.m. Children will enjoy the short movies ‘Too Many Toys’ and ‘I Lost My Bear’ before tucking their critters in and saying goodnight. You’ll go home while your stuffed animal stays behind at the library for some super sleepover fun. Children may pick up their stuffed animals the following day between 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Each child will receive a memory booklet filled with amazing photos of their critter participating in a variety of overnight activities. Only one stuffed animal per child please.
