So what is the Stuffed Animal Sleepover??

Well, this is the third annual. I call it “how to have a sleepover and get some sleep.” Go here for a photo and more info and a .pdf of a brochure I made for a poster session a few years ago.  

The gist? Kids sign up. My limit is 25. They drop off their animals Friday before 4:45 (in the summer we close at 5 pm). They write a tag that lists the animal’s name and who they “belong” to. After the library is closed, my assistant and I take pictures of the animals.  In the morning there is a breakfast to reunite with the animals, and a craft for the pictures (each kid gets a group photo and a photo of their “stuffie” doing something with other stuffies.)

I like it because it means I get to sleep in my own bed that night. And it’s fun. People love the concept.
