"American Girl" Dolls Featured At Boca Raton Library

American Girl

American Girl® Dolls are part of a new exhibit at Boca Raton Public Library.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com)(From Boca Raton Public Library) — American Girl dolls have arrived at the Boca Raton Public Library!  On September 21, library patrons will be able to borrow a doll in the American Girl BeForever Collection.  This signature line of historical dolls, books and accessories allows kids to connect with inspirational characters and absorbing stories from American history. More than 27 million American Girl dolls have been sold since their introduction in 1986.

Six dolls will be available for checkout: Kit, Caroline, Josefina, Rebecca, Kaya, and Addy. Each doll comes with a carrying case, a coordinating book, a complete outfit, and a journal for kids to write about their adventures with the American Girl doll. Each doll can be checked out for one week at a time.

“We are beyond excited to offer something totally new and different from our library.  American Girl dolls can be expensive for families to purchase, and this provides a unique opportunity for them to borrow one for free,” notes Amanda Liebl, Youth Programs Director. “Not only can children take the doll home and read about her time in history, but they get to continue her adventures by writing about them in the journal provided. The more children who create memories with the doll, the more journal entries other children get to read. How fun it will be to start our very own Boca Raton story line for these American Girl dolls!”

As an educational partner within the community, the Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to introduce children to stories reflecting America’s past, while encouraging imaginative play through interaction with the American Girl dolls. This new collection will be available for check-out at the Downtown Library at 400 NW 2nd Avenue and the Spanish River Library at 1501 N.W. Spanish River Blvd. A valid Boca Raton Public Library card is required.

The Boca Raton Public Library provides outstanding library services, resources, and programs that meet the educational, recreational, cultural, and informational needs of library users in its two locations. For more information about the Boca Raton Public Library, please visit www.bocalibrary.org.
