On Thursday night, the lights were on late at the Library – it was the Stuffed Animal Sleepover!  Earlier in the evening, dressed in their pajamas the children gathered with their stuffed animals to hear Doris Jane Smith read some favorite bedtime stories and lullabies.  Then each “plushie” got one more hug and a kiss and was tucked into the tent for their sleepover at the Library.  But of course, as soon as the Library closed for the night, the stuffed animals were into mischief!
