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.
