Storybook characters come to life at Omaha Public Library

Storybook characters come to life at Omaha Public Library
March 14, 2014
Omaha Public Library (OPL) welcomes all ages to Benson Branch, 6015 Binney St., on Sunday, March 30, 1-4 p.m., for a Storybook Land celebration! Eight life-sized characters from children’s literature will be on hand including Clifford, Corduroy, Curious George, Froggy, Maisy, Scuffy, Spot and Wild Thing. OPL’s beloved mascot Scamper will also attend the festivities.

Event participants will receive a Storybook Land passport upon arrival. They will receive a stamp for each costume character they visit, and be rewarded with their own book to keep. Storytimes are scheduled throughout the afternoon at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., and the books read will feature the stories of visiting characters.

“Storybook characters visit storytimes at OPL throughout the year and families really enjoy the time to meet the characters and take photos,” said OPL executive director Gary Wasdin. “Storybook Land is a great opportunity to meet many characters all at once and create some great memories.”

 The event is free and registration is not required. Parents and guardians are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture fun moments throughout the afternoon. For more information on this event and additional upcoming events at Omaha Public Library’s 12 metro locations, visit
