We are honoring everyone’s favorite honey-loving bear during Winnie the Pooh Day at our libraries this January! Join us for Winnie the Pooh Day programs to celebrate the birthday of A.A. Milne, the British author and creator of Winnie the Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh Day celebrations will include storytimes, crafts, movies, and visits from Winnie the Pooh and his friends, along with photo opportunities. Children and families are encouraged to participate. Winnie the Pooh Day is on Saturday, January 18 but our branches will have programs from January 9 through January 22. See the complete list of events below.
Author A.A. Milne brought the adorable bear to life in his stories which also featured his son, Christopher Robin. Milne based Winnie on a black bear that lived at the London Zoo. For the full story of Winnie the Pooh, check out the picture book Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick and illustrated by Sophie Blackall.
