Stuffed animal sleepover

Paris Public Library will host a sleepover for stuffed animals on Thursday, September 19. Children ages 2-6 are invited to bring a stuffed animal to a storytime at 4:30pm. After the 30-minute storytime, children will go home and leave their animals to spend the night at the library. (Be sure to bring a stuffed animal that your child will be comfortable leaving overnight.)

There will be posts on Facebook and our website during the sleepover so you can see what your animal is doing.

Call, email, or message the library on Facebook to sign up! If your child can’t come to the storytime, but wants their animal to come — sign up and drop off the animal by 6pm on the 19th.
