One of the many wonderful ways you can celebrate Ontario Public Library Week this year (October 20-26, 2019) is to join in a Stuffy Sleepover at your local branch!

Stuffies Reading

On the evening of Thursday October 24, Toronto Public Library branches around the city will be hosting Stuffy Sleepovers for children ages 4-8, their families and caregivers, and of course their favourite stuffed toys! Hear stories, play games or make a sleep mask, and then children can leave their stuffy to spend the night in the library. Kids can pick up their stuffy after the sleepover and find out how their friend spent the night. Check out our website to see which branch closest to you is hosting a Stuffy Sleepover!

Stuffies Design Bookmarks

I’ve included a list of some of my favourite bedtime stories. You can find these books at various branches around the Toronto Public Library system and, as always, place a hold on one to pick it up at your local branch!
