It's Time for a Teddy Bear Picnic!

Children dance with their teddy bears at last year's Teddy Bear Picnic.

The teddy bear is over 100 years old but it’s still a popular children’s toy. This lovable stuffed animal has a day all its own, National Teddy Bear Day. To celebrate, Lakewood Public Library is hosting a Teddy Bear Picnic on Friday, September 8, 2017 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Main Library.

You and your three- to eight-year-old child are invited to bring a favorite teddy bear and join the Library staff for a special story time that includes listening to teddy bear stories, singing teddy bear songs and making a teddy bear craft. After the craft, kids will enjoy a tasty treat to wrap-up this bear-ific program. This is a free program, but space is limited and registration is required.

Weather permitting, the Teddy Bear Picnic will be held on the front lawn of the Main Library. In the event of rain, the program will be moved to the Main Library First Floor Activity Room. Please check in at the Children’s and Youth Services desk on the day of the event for the exact location.

To register for the Teddy Bear Picnic, stop by the CYS desk at the Main Library, call (216) 226-8275, ext. 140 or visit and click on the yellow Register for Programs box.
