Our American Girl Book Club met Julie Albright this month.

We traveled back to the time of flower children and learned from Julie’s fight to join an all-boys basketball team.

On the first Wednesday of each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book. Then we make a craft and play games that tie into the book, character or era.

For example, in December, we discussed how Julie’s mom ran a thrift and craft shop. So we made fashionable ponchos for our dolls.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then she can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Kaya.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
