Who runs the world? Teddy Bears! Well, not really, but at Petworth Library they will rule for a day! Many Americans celebrate teddy bears twice a year: Sept. 9 (National Teddy Bear Day) and Nov. 14 (National American Teddy Bear Day). Bring your favorite teddy bear to Petworth Neighborhood Library for a cozy and fun teddy-themed Family Story Time with parachute songs, poems and a group photo. Afterwards, be sure to check out some teddy-centric tales for you and your plush pal to enjoy at home!
For anyone diagnosed with Diabetes, pre-diabetes or caring for a diabetic. Healthcare professionals will give educational information and answer questions on food choices, exercise and medicine.
