When I first found out about stuffed animal sleepover programs in my children’s services class in grad school, I made it my mission to host one. This program plan is from September 2016, when I finally had an opportunity to complete that mission. Due to the program’s overwhelming popularity, we’re hosting it again this September. Another staff member will be taking the reins this year—which is awesome because literally every librarian deserves to experience the warm fuzzies this program brings.
I have wanted to do this program ever since I saw this article in American Libraries last year. Now I’ve done it twice—once at each of our two small branches as an evening storytime. Take a look at all the fun we had this March!
