Hooray! Winnie-the-Pooh turns 90 this summer! (On August 21, to be precise.) If you’d like to send Winnie a birthday card, we have a mailbox at the Children’s Center @ 42nd Street and are accepting cards on Winnie’s behalf. After all, the original Winnie-the-Pooh doll set — including Winnie, of course! — is at the Library, on view in the Children’s Center, in a special room surrounded by art of the 100 Acre Wood! If you haven’t seen the darling little figures, stop by and take a look!
Not only are we collecting cards for Winnie, but we are also making cards in a Family Crafts program on August 9 (for ages 3-12 years; preregistration required). On Saturday, August 20, the Library is having a big Winnie-the-Pooh birthday bash. It starts at 3 pm, and there will be face painting, balloon animals, crafts, and more.
It’s a Winnie-the-Pooh summer! He’ll only turn 90 years old once; celebrate with us!
