Stuffed Animal Sleep-over promises fuzzy fun for children

it'sunBEARable There’s a very special sleep-over happening at the Shelby Township library, and your child is invited. But don’t forget their favorite stuffed animal, they’re invited too. The Stuffed Animal Sleepover starts at 2 p.m. on Nov. 14 at the Shelby Township Library, located on 51670 Van Dyke Ave. This event is sure to be a fun-filled night for both your child and their stuffed animal friend.

“It’s so nice to see the kids with their stuffed animals,” Librarian Bethany Boutin said. “You really know that they love them a lot.”

Your child will get to hear a fun story from a staff member, and then be given their own blank picture frames to decorate. At the end of the sleep-over, they get to tuck their animals into bed and say good-bye to them. Come by the following week to claim your child’s stuffed animal and picture frame. But the frame won’t be empty, it’ll have a special photo of the fun your child’s stuffed animal had at its very own sleep over.

This event is designed for children ages three and up. No registration needed.
