Running a Stuffed Animal Sleepover in the Library
Stuffed animal sleepovers are programs that can be fun for staff, are a great way to engage patrons who don’t necessarily come into the library and boost the library’s public profile. However, they take a significant amount of time and energy to plan and execute. Join Al Hayden of the Peabody Library for a webinar on planning and prepping for your stuffie sleepover that will maximize your time, engage patrons and keep the program running as smoothly as possible. At the end of this webinar, you should come away with some ideas on how to adapt this program to your community’s particular needs and tastes and how to execute the program in a way that is practical for you.
Al Hayden is the Head of Children’s Services / Interim Assistant Director at the Peabody Institute Library in Peabody, MA. She is passionate about making libraries accessible to as many people as possible through as many channels as possible and believes that libraries are the best resource for a community to grow lifelong readers and learners starting from birth. Her favorite part of a read-aloud is “doing the voices” and she ensures that both her inner Disney princess and her inner Muppet make outward appearances at all of her story times.
