Lopez Island Library and the Friends of the Lopez Island Library are proud to host the 35th Annual Teddy Bear Picnic. As in the past the picnic will be held in the orchard behind the library. Held in honor of Helen Anderson who started the Teddy Bear Picnic, the event is the largest held by the library each year. There is typically great weather and popular singer/songwriter Charley Thweatt will lead children in his wonderful sing-along songs. Mr. Bear visits each year too and children may bring their favorite stuffed toy along for the fun. Snacks and teddy bear ears will be provided. We hope you will join us as we celebrate Helen, the joys of childhood and the brilliance of a summer picnic at your library.
