Teddy bear Sleepover

Children are invited to wear their pyjamas and bring their favourite teddy bear or stuffed toy with them to the library for a storytime and bedtime snack. They will then attach a name label to their toy and say goodbye as their toys are going to stay overnight for a sleepover at the library. When they return in the morning to pick up their toys they will receive a photo montage of the exciting things the toys got up to overnight. Once edited, a YouTube video of what the toys got up to will be posted on the Crediton Library YouTube channel. Please book in advance at the library or by phoning 01363 772578 (and let us know if milk and biscuits are not suitable for your child’s dietary needs).
