Pajamas and Lovies and Reading—Oh My!

We’re celebrating the importance of reading in the lives of young Kansans throughout the month of November with lots of fun at the library.

Sunday–Saturday, NOV 12–18, join us for storytime readings of The Napping House by Audrey Wood (the librarians will be wearing their snuggliest jammies—you should, too!) and enjoy the fresh air on our Downtown Storywalk©. We’re even hosting a stuffed animal sleepover right here at the library!

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers Week is an annual event that promotes reading to children under the age of five. Parents, teachers, and caregivers are encouraged to read The Napping House throughout November.
