Two tea parties for a tea-riffic anniversary

We're throwing a pair of tea parties -- one for adults, one for kids -- to celebrate the 150th anniversary of "Little Women."

We’re throwing a pair of tea parties — one for adults, one for kids — to celebrate the 150th anniversary of “Little Women.”

Tea for two? How about two tea parties?!

We’re celebrating the 150th anniversary of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women with a pair of parties — one for adults and one for kids.

First, adults can enjoy a Civil War-era tea at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at our Main Branch. Our friends from the Sisters Tea Room will provide tea, snacks, and a speaker to discuss tea during this turning point in American history.

We do require registration for this program. You can come to the library or call us to RSVP. When you register, there will be a $5 fee. (Yes, this is the rare program for which its cost requires us to charge a small fee.)20150929_193243

We also ask that attendees bring their own tea cup to the party.

Additionally, we’re throwing a tea party for kids at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, at our Lake Branch.

It’s open to all kids in kindergarten through fifth grade. They can sip tea and make fun hats too.

This program is free to attend. You can register online or call our Lake Branch at (440) 257-2512.

And these tea parties are just part of our September celebration of Little Women‘s sesquicentennial.

We’re hosting plays, Christmas carolinghistorical reenactorslectures on American Transcendentalism and more.

Anyone and everyone can learn about and explore the world of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March, as well as their creator, this September at the library.
