On Thursday, July, 25th, young children will bring in their favorite stuffed animals, fill out a permission slip and then leave the care of their creatures for teens to babysit during a “sleepover” in the library.
Between 6:30 and 7:45 pm, teens will then take pictures of all the fun adventures the animals get up to when no one is around in the library and create photographs for the child of his or her stuffed friend.
This is a creative program involving the devising of cute/clever vignettes and then taking photos.
Teen caregivers will be like Santa – the kids will never really know how it all happened!
Registration required but space is not limited, sign up is currently in progress.
