The stuffed animals of Northbrook came to the Library last night, and boy, did they have a blast! After getting to know each other over pizza, they did a painting craft to take home, played on a zipline, dressed up, put on a puppet show, and enjoyed a PJ storytime. They all stayed up way past their bedtimes, but they eventually went to sleep. Everyone had a really good time and made a few new friends. Take a look at our slideshow to see for yourself!
Running from December 1st through the 10th, you can donate non-perishable foods in cans, boxes and plastic jars (no glass) at the library in place of your late fines!
