National Napping Day

Monday, March 14th 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.

Monday, March 14th 3:30-5:00 p.m. National Napping Day is all about providing an opportunity to adjust to the lost hour of sleep due to ‘springing forward’ for daylight savings. Scientists have proven that mid-afternoon naps are beneficial. Just a few benefits of napping are: a decrease in the risk of heart issues, making bones stronger, and improving memory retention. To celebrate this healthy holiday, the teen room will be transformed into a napping zone. The program will include a short story-time, a snack of milk and cookies, followed by a solid half hour of quiet, darkness, and lullabies. No registration required. Napping isn’t just for little kids anymore! BYOP (Bring your own pillow)!
