This is one of the few children’s programs that made me wish I worked in a public library. Children bring their stuffed animals to the library, do a story time in their pajamas, and then leave their animals behind for a library sleepover. In the morning typically there are wonderful photos of what the animals did overnight. However, Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, KS recently did one better and created a video during the event. I present it to you here in all its Internet meme glory.
