Does Your Teddy Need a Checkup?

Kids will have the opportunity to become little doctors and nurses at the Teddy Bear Clinic program taking place at several KDL branches this winter. Who are the patients? The kids’ favorite stuffed animal, of course! Kids of all ages can bring their teddy bear to the library for a checkup. They will have the opportunity to weigh and measure the patient, examine them, bandage them and more! This program is presented in partnership with Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.

    Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately this program is not being offered at the Grandville branch this year, but we would love to have you and your daughter attend the Teddy Bear Clinic at a different KDL branch!
