Children, parents and teddy bears gathered July 28 in the children’s garden at the A.K. Smiley Public Library for a Teddy Bears’ Picnic story time.
The event celebrated the reopening of the updated children’s garden, outside the library’s Young Readers’ Room.
More than 100 people came to the story time, including about 60 children.
The event featured stories, songs, snacks and a teddy bear craft activity, and children were encouraged to bring their favorite teddy bears.
