Wheatfield Library’s First Ever- Stuffed Animal Sleepover
Wheatfield
Tuesday, Aug. 26, 12 noon-8:00 pm
Register Online or call 219-956-3774.
Have you ever wondered what happens in the library after it's closed? We will give you the chance to find out at our first ever Stuffed Animal Sleepover! When you drop off your friend we will create a name tag for them (we need to know their name and who owns them!) When you pick up your friend, each animal owner will receive a free photo album keepsake that will tell you the story of their overnight adventures at the library! Drop off will be Aug, 26 from noon until 8:00 pm. Pick up will be anytime after 3:00 on Aug. 27.

Thursday, August 28th at 1 p.m. Join us as we discuss The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister.
