Stuffed Animal Sleepover Jamboree
Bring your favorite stuffed animal friend to the library for a party and a sleepover. When you go home in the evening, the animals will undoubtedly get up to some mischief. Don’t forget to come back the next morning to pick them up, enjoy some juice and donuts, and see what fun they had in the library overnight!
The Summer Reading Program kicks off this year on June 1st and runs through the end of July. Sign up at MaricopaCountyReads.org (English) or CondadoDeMaricopaLee.org (Spanish). The theme of this year’s program is “Tails & Tales”, encouraging readers to explore the many stories of the animal kingdom by reading, completing challenges and attending virtual events and participating in community experiences. The program begins on Tuesday, June 1 and plays a vital role in helping to reduce the “Summer Slide”—the learning loss experienced while transitioning between school years.
Registration is required for all events. Participants can register for events by visiting dfla.org or calling the library at 480-488-2286.
