Sailor Chavez, 4, shows off her toy snake Pinky's memory book.

Active night for cuddly friends

CLOVIS - About 20 children returned to Clovis-Carver Public Library on Saturday morning to find a memory book filled with pictures of their favorite toys' adventures from the previous night's stuffed animal sleepover.

The youngsters were told their cuddly companions were very active before going to bed at the library.

Their fictional adventures included computer time and playing dressup.

"They were looking at the fish tank and we had a book cart race and we had story time," Youth Services Librarian Rachel Meeks said.

Sailor Chavez, 4, was happy to see her stuffed snake Pinky stayed hydrated.

"I liked when they were getting their water," Sailor said of her favorite photo from Pinky's memory book where the animals were drinking from the water fountain.

Meeks said she believes this was the first stuffed animal sleepover at the Clovis library, but she does not think it will be the last.

"I was thinking maybe during summer reading I'll do it again because we had a good reaction to it and it's pretty simple and low cost," Meeks said.
