Teddy sleepover - Warehouse Buildings, Stromness

Would your teddy or other soft toy like a sleepover in the library?  I wonder what they would get up to without any grown-ups around…?  Would they sleep soundly?  Would they take the mobile library van out for a drive?  Who knows!  Drop off your teddy and collect them the next day to find out what they've been up to! Drop off between 10am – 4pm on Tuesday 12th July.  Collect between 12pm – 4pm on Wednesday 13th July.
