Kids participating in this summer's "Dream Big Read! GO and Search the Galaxy!" program at York County Libraries are invited to drop off their favorite stuffed animals for a sleepover at the library.
Ellen Helfrick, library director for the Collinsville Community Library, suggests that kids should "pick an animal that is brave enough to spend the night without you." The stuffed friends get to sleep over at the library, and children return the next day to see the antics of their special friends caught on camera.
The following libraries are holding stuffed animal sleepovers. Any questions can be directed to the individual library.
