SCPL Kids' Page

Librarian Jenn:
Hi Hank! Are you looking forward to the stuffed animal sleepover at the Aptos Library?

Hank:
Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof!

Librarian Jenn:
I assume that’s a yes?

Hank:
Yes, I’m thrilled to participate!

Librarian Jenn:
Could you tell me a little about yourself?

Hank:
I’m the Capitola library’s Tales to Tails mascot. I heard about the sleepover at Aptos and asked if I could chaperone. I also really, really, really want to take some pictures!

Librarian Jenn:
That’s great! Do you have any specific plans for the sleepover?

Hank:
I’d like to do some drawing, play games on the computers, read some stories to the other critters, and maybe play some hide-and seek. Most of all, I’m planning for us all to have fun!

Librarian Jenn:
We had a really energetic group of stuffed animals come to our Scotts Valley sleepover. Who do you think will
be coming to Aptos?

Hank:
I have no idea except I do know that George will be coming to co-chaperone. I haven’t seen him for a while so I look forward to catching up with him.

Librarian Jenn:
Do you have any favorite books that you plan to read to your new friends?

Hank:
Well, let’s see… I adore There’s a Bird on your Head by Mo Willems and I love the bedtime story The Book of Sleep by Il sung Na. I also really love Library Lion by Michele Knudsen and Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes. And I have more planned but I don’t want to give them away!

Librarian Jenn:
It has been really fun talking to you Hank! Thank you so much for talking with me!

Hank:
You are very welcome! I look forward to seeing everyone at the Aptos library on Wednesday, December 28th at 6pm! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof!
