Quincy Public Library hosts first ever "Lights out at the LIbrary"

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Some stuffed animals got a sneak peak at what happens in the library After the lights go out.

Thursday, children brought their stuffed animals to a "Lights out in the library" event at the Quincy Public Library.

The kids read books and danced before leaving their animals behind for a sleep over.

Library officials say they put on the event to encourage literacy in young children.

And parents say the event is a unique way to get kids interested in reading.

"I think it's amazing I have a 9 year old and a 5 year old, and it's nice to get them in the library activities, I think it's a great thing," said Jen Boss.

The kids will return to the library Saturday morning for a little breakfast and to find out what their animals did during the night.
