The Great Teddy Bear Sleepover comes to Tawa!

That’s right, the Great Teddy Bear Sleepover is back and this time it’s heading to Mervyn Kemp (Tawa) Library! Join us at Mervyn Kemp Library on Thursday the 17th of October at 6.30pm in your pyjamas — and don’t forget to bring your favourite teddy or stuffed toy (or your second favourite if you can’t bear to leave your favourite behind) for a night of super fun stories and activities. Then, leave them behind to have a big sleepover with all their new teddy friends. If the Johnsonville teddies are anything to go by, they’re likely to get up to all sorts of nonsense in the library after hours! Pick up your teddy from the library the next morning to find out what they got up to!

This event is suitable for children of all ages. Phone Mervyn Kemp Library on 282 1690 for more information.
