#4) Library Event: Flat Friend Sleepover
The paper friend version of a stuffed animal sleepover! What is a flat friend? Design a paper cut out of yourself, a stuffed animal or toy, a book character, or even an imaginary friend! Cut our your flat friend so that they can come and spend a night at the library!
How to participate: Very similar to a stuffed animal sleepover, kids will drop off their flat friends at the library on January 25th-27th during curbside hours (10am-6pm). Fill out a Flat Friend Contact Form so that we know which flat friend is yours and a little about their sleepover routines! Your flat friends are going to have a blast and sleep at the library until Thursday, January 28th, when you can come pick them up! We will then send you photos of all the antics your flat friends got up to while at the library!
If you need card stock to draw your friend on, curbside hours are M-Th 10am-6pm, F-Sat 10am-4pm, please call Youth Services at 978-694-2098 when you arrive. For more information on where the Flat Friend concept came from, check out the Flat Stanley Project here.
