Stuffed Animal Sleepover 2012

Stuffed Animal Sleepover

On Monday, July 23rd, the library hosted its first stuffed animal sleepover.  Children brought their favorite stuffed animal and  left them to have their own sleepover at the library. When they came to pick up their animals the next day, the children were able to take home pictures of what their critters had been up to in the night!

Books as design objects are in demand by interior designers, high-end builders, hotel developers and architects. Multimillion dollar homes have to come with libraries: spaces with built-in shelves and lots of books. And there are people who specialize in furnishing these libraries with books: 2,000 books wrapped in white or in cream colored leather? 4,000 books wrapped in black? No problem! Will they be read? That is another question!
