We welcomed the newest historical American Girl, MaryEllen, with a party—and not just any party. MaryEllen’s a 1950’s girl, so we threw her a sock hop!
There were crafts, games, rootbeer floats, and the girls all learned how to do the twist and hand jive.
The girls also competed in hula-hoop and bubble-blowing contests, but it was all in good fun.
We love the American Girl books so much at Mentor Public Library that we have a book club dedicated to them.
We meet on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a different American Girl book and make a new craft.
Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Feb. 3 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will meet Felicity.
You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
