Celebrating “Snoozefest” for All Ages

Throughout the week of January 6, your Library will feature “Snoozefest” programs for all ages in honor of Festival of Sleep Day on January 3. The unofficial holiday is intended to encourage recovery from the busyness of the holidays with rest and relaxation.

Our Preschool Storytime and Book Worms programs will feature sleepy, comforting reads like “Stop That Yawn!” by Annie Caron Levis. In line with the sleep theme, children are encouraged to wear their pajamas at both Preschool Storytime and Book Worms. After hearing stories, kids will march around the Library in a pajamas parade. Book Worms is on Thursday, January 9 from 6:15-7 p.m. and is intended for kids ages 5-8. Registration is required and can be completed here. Sleep-themed stories will also be read and followed by a pajamas parade during our Preschool Storytimes from 11-11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 8 and Thursday, January 9.

Next week’s events for teens and adults will also celebrate coziness and relaxation after the busy holidays! On Tuesday, January 7 from 6-7:30 p.m., teens can enjoy board games and hot cocoa at Board Game Cafe.

Adults are invited to our January hygge event, Hope and Happiness for 2020, on Wednesday, January 8 from 6-8 p.m. The program will focus on relaxation and comfort with hot cocoa, refreshments, and a selection of cozy reads. Adah Watson of Universal Holistics will also offer a guided meditation for stress relief and breathwork, along with drumming to sync the heart and mind in releasing stress.
