The Columbia County Library and Project LINK are inviting special needs children and their families to a pajama party.
The event, dubbed "Pajama Night at the Library for Kids With Special Needs,'' is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Columbia County Library on Ronald Reagan Drive in Evans. Special needs children with developmental delays, disabilities or special health concerns are welcome to attend the free event.
"They get to be the center of attention, and that's important for all kids," said Dr. Nancy Webb, who oversees Project LINK, which provides education resources and guidance to families who have children with special needs.
It's the first time Project LINK has joined with the library for the event.
"All programs, like after hours, we do it mainly to include the entire family," said Pam Link, a children's librarian at the Columbia County library. "It is a good chance for dads to come. We encourage grandparents to come. We encourage other siblings to come."
All children who attend will participate in story time, games and crafts, and see a performance by the MCG Children's Medical Center Kids on the Block puppets.
"It is just a fun event," Webb said, adding that parents can take their pajama-clad children straight home to bed after story time.
The event is free, but preregistration is required. Call (706) 447-7657.
