Stuffie Sleep-Away Camp: Part I

Have you ever wondered what happens overnight at the Library? JK Growling is cordially extending an invitation to your stuffed animals to find out!

Do you have a stuffie who's longing for a taste of adventure? A fluffy, independent soul who's filled with curiosity and wanderlust? If so, Stuffie Sleep-Away Camp might just be for them!

Bring your lovey to a special Pajama Storytime on Wednesday, August 10th at 4pm. Tuck them in, kiss them goodnight, and bid them adieu. Pick-up your friend on Friday afternoon (8/12 @ 2pm), and attend a presentation where you'll discover what kind of antics they got up to after dark!

This program is designed for children ages 2-8. Registration is required and will open on Wednesday, July 27th at 10am. Please click here to register. If you view the form early, please note that it will read "The form Stuffie Sleep-Away Camp is no longer accepting responses" until it officially opens on the 27th.

We strongly encourage you to work with your child to choose the best stuffed animal for this event. They may not want to choose their favorite, as they'll be separated for two whole nights. In a stuffie emergency, you can (of course) pick up your stuffed animal early (during open Library hours). In the event of inclement weather, our Storytime will move inside to the 1st Floor Presentation Commons at Queset House.
