Volunteering for the Stuffy Sleep Over

Stuffy Sleep Over Bear ImageHelp us make the library more fun for our little visitors. Children will drop off their favorite stuffed animal at the library, and it is the job of the teen volunteers to make it a memorable experience. Our volunteer's will take the stuffed animals and put them in sleep over situations; like, watching a movie with popcorn, being read a bedtime story, etc. The ideas are endless and up to the volunteers. Don't forget to take pictures so the children see what their stuffed animal was up to while they slept over at the library! How do you sign up? Just check on the Teen Summer Volunteer Application that you'd like to sign up for the Stuffy Sleep Over!
