Stuffed Animal Sleepover Slideshow and Photos


2015 Stuffed Animal Sleepover Slideshow and Photos
On April 2nd, the library held a special story time in the Young Readers' Room.  Miss Carrie-Anne invited children to bring a stuffed friend to the library to listen to stories, sing songs, and then leave their stuffed friend for a sleepover.  

As you might imagine, the stuffies weren't very interested in sleeping.  They colored, played dress up, and quite frankly got into a bit of trouble.  Eventually they settled down for a much needed rest.

In the morning, the stuffies were awoken early for a field trip to McQuesten Farm.  At the farm, they explored the green houses, took turns watering flowers, fed the goats and yes, some behaved a bit fresh.

Returning to the library before it opened, the stuffies all lined up awaiting the return of their human friends to take them back home for hugs and snuggles.

Miss Carrie-Anne created a scrapbook of photos to commemorate her 6th Annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover for everyone to enjoy.

Book Bunch Reads The Sixty-Eight Rooms for May 20, 2015
Book Bunchers in grades 3-5 read The Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone for their May 20th gathering at 4:00.  The book discussion will be followed by a short activity. Books are available in the Young Readers' Room on the lower level of the library.

About the Book
Almost everybody who has grown up in Chicago knows about the Thorne Rooms. Housed in the deep inside the Chicago Art Institute they are a collection of 68 exquisitely crafted miniature rooms. Each room is set in a different historic period, and every detail is perfect. Some might even say, the rooms are magic. Imagine—what if on a field trip, you discovered a key that allowed you to shrink so that you could sneak inside and explore the rooms' secrets? What if you discovered that others had done so before you? And that someone had left something important behind?
