Join us for an American Girl Tea Party on August 13 at 2:30. Registration is required due to the small space of the Community Room. Thanks to the generosity of the Chenango Valley Doll Club, mothers, daughters and their dolls can gather in their tea party best to play games, listen to an American Girl story and enjoy light refreshment. In addition to the Tea Party, the Doll Club has donated Caroline an American Girl Doll who lived during the War of 1812. She lives on Lake Ontario in the bustling village of Sackets Harbor, NY. Her father is captured as the Americans fight the British so Caroline must help her mother to keep the family shipyard running. One lucky participant in the Tea Party will be the first to “check out” the new doll and all of her clothing. Please call the library at 432-1980 or stop by to register.
