WAUSEON — Have you ever wondered what stuffed animals do in the library at night? Do they come alive, get into trouble, read books, etc.? Well, then this is your chance to find out. On Monday, February 22 at 7:00 p.m., the Wauseon Public Library will host a Stuffed Animal Sleepover. The sleepover is free and is open to all children.
“Children are asked to bring their SECOND favorite stuffed animal to the library for a bedtime story time,” explained Children’s Librarian Rachel Dominique. “We will read two stories, have a bedtime snack, tuck the stuffed animals into bed, and yes, leave them here overnight.”
Children are welcome to wear their pajamas to the library on February 22. Then come back on February 23, and find out, through pictures, what their stuffed animals did throughout the night.
Solve the mystery on Tuesday, February 23 at 6:30 p.m. The Mystery Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Valentine Murder”—a Lucy Stone Mystery by Leslie Meier. The book discussion is free and is open to everyone.
According to the book jacket, “It’s Valentine’s Day in Tinker’s Cove. And while the cupcakes Lucy Stone is baking for her children will have pink frosting and candy hearts, Lucy’s thoughts aren’t centered on sugary sentiments. She’s barely arrived at her first board meeting of the newly-renovated library when Bitsy Howell, the new librarian, is found dead in the basement, shot only minutes before story hour was to start. The agitated board members assume that Bitsy was killed by an outsider, until Detective Lt. Horowitz arrives on the scene and announces that the killer is among them”
The library has ordered copies of the book, so each group member may have one. Please stop by the library, and pick up your copy today.
