If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time, you know we are HUGE fans of the local library system in the South Sound! There are a variety of events to enjoy, for FREE, at your local libraries. Michael from the Tumwater Timberland Library wants to be sure that our readers are aware of the fun events they have in March.
Stuffed Animal Singalong Sleepover
Monday, 3/2/2015, 6:00-6:45PM
Bring your favorite stuffed animal for a sleepover at the Tumwater Timberland Library! After a singalong of songs and movement games, we’ll tuck the animals in and say goodnight. Come back the next day between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. to pick up your stuffed animal friend and find out what mischief the animals got into during their night at the library! This event is part of the Family Read & Sing Aloud, a Timberland Regional Library districtwide program.
