Do you ever wonder what happens at the library when the lights are turned off? Kids, choose a stuffed animal friend to have a special library adventure. (Make sure it isn’t the animal you need to fall asleep!) Enjoy songs and stories together, and tuck your stuffed animal into bed for an overnight stay at the library. Pick up your animal the next day the library is open and discover what your animal was up to during the sleepover.
