---- — LONDONDERRY — Jack Bailey-Gates clutched his furry friend.
The pair were getting ready to attend Leach Library’s teddy bear story time Jan. 14 and were joined by many of their friends.
Jack was joined by about 20 of his friends also holding their favorite stuffed animals for the event.
The children gathered in the lower level meeting room and took their places on large mats on the floor. Some stuffed animals got tossed about during the stories; others were held tightly by their owners.
Children’s room librarian Jen Delvillar read stories about bears, told tales of bears and gave children a chance to enjoy teddy bear songs.
From grizzlies to polar to brown to black and all kinds in between, children heard about them all.
The story time is part of Leach Library’s full schedule of children’s events. For information, call 432-1132.
