STUFFED ANIMAL SLEEPOVER
Drop off your stuffie anytime on Thursday (and make sure to fill out their emergency contact information and name tag) and then pick them up on Friday! Your stuffie deserves to have some fun over break and you’ll see what silliness ensues when stuffed animals takeover the library for a night! (Please note, if your stuffie needs to spend a little longer at the library if you are going way, we can make arrangements!)

While the Library seeks to provide reasonable accommodation upon request for access to routine Library programs and resources, it is preferable that requests for accommodation with regard to scheduled events be made at least one week prior to the event to allow the Library sufficient time to make alternate arrangements for the event.
