Free Books for Kids/Stuffed Animal Sleep Over - Friday March 30, 10 am – 4 pm. Choose a free book and drop off your favorite stuffed animal for a wild night at the library. What trouble will your critter get in when the library locks its doors? The library's Teen Advisory Group (TAG) will leave tons of fun and exciting books for them to read and stacks of movies for them to watch. They will have the time of their lives enjoying their all-animal library sleepover. Bring one of your favorite stuffed animals to the library by closing time on Friday March 30 and pick them up on Monday. You'll get a picture of what your animal did over the weekend.
