Stuffies take over Yarrow Library during sleepover

The first ever Stuffie Sleepover at the Yarrow Library was a pretty big success.

A group of visitors who had a sleepover at the Yarrow Library had more fun than one could imagine this week, and it was all captured on video and in photos.

They used trolleys as race cars, the book drop as a slide, and took a hot air balloon ride through the aisles.

But aren’t those the type of shenanigans one would expect stuffed animals to get up to when left to run amok?

The first ever Stuffie Sleepover was a pretty big success said library supervisor, Wanda Lindsay. She, along with Jacqueline Faber, organized the event.

About a dozen children dropped their stuffed animals off at the library last Tuesday, and picked them up the next day.

On the Wednesday afternoon, the kids gathered around to see the photos and videos that Lindsay and Faber had taken of their plush friends.

Pooh Bear lead the group to raid the fridge and steal the adults’ lunches, there was a puppet show, plus they ordered pizza. Johnny had to borrow a librarian’s reading glasses to play games on the computer.

They stayed up really late. “Past midnight,” said Lindsay.

When it was time for bed, they brushed their teeth, Chewbacca put his arm around his new friend, and they all played with glow sticks. In the morning, Cutie played with her tennis ball as she always does.

The Stuffie Sleepover will be returning to the Yarrow Library again. Go to to watch for the next Stuffie Sleepover, or for more info call 604-823-4664.
