American Girl Doll Joins Collection

July 11, 2019 - 4:31pm -- publicity

Washington Park has a new resident - and kids with a library card can take her home for a week!

The Broad Street library has acquired an American Girl doll, which is now available for loan with a special backpack kit. The backpack includes the doll, an American Girl story book and a journal, which kids can use to write about adventures with their doll friend.

The basic doll is the Addy Walker model, which was generously donated to PCL by American Girl. In addition to the doll and the backpack kit, additional clothes and accessories, such as the Luciana flight suit, Addy's nightgown and a cute party dress are also available for checkout.

The doll must be checked out to a school age child who has a library card in good standing as well as parental permission to check out this special item. Everything circulates for 1 week and must be returned to Washington Park.

More than likely, this doll will have a companion or two before too long!
