Overnight at library features Teddy Bears, munnies and robots

Aurora Public Library Teen Advisory Board members were treated to an overnight in the downtown Main library on Saturday, June 9 that featured a Teddy Bear sleepover for stuffed animals of the library's young patrons.
Children were asked to bring their Teddy Bears to the Main Library on June 9 so that they could experience the lock-in with their adoptive parents for the night.
Eleven stuffed animals -- bears, rabbits and dogs among them -- had a picnic among the shelves of DVDs, played with puzzles in the Young People's Department, and ate pizza along with the teens. Not one fell asleep during the night!
While the animals were busy reading books like "Corduroy," teens were busy painting molded plastic "munnies" and creating robots out of their teammates using tin foil, duck tape and hangers.
Eighteen young people spent the night in the library as a thank-you to the teens who help the teen librarians plan and execute programs, as well as give input into library issues.
The lock-in began at 9 p.m. and ended the next morning at 8 a.m. It was the third annual Teen Advisory Board lock-in.
