The Margaret Heggan Free Public Library allows cardholders to bring home American Girl dolls for one week at a time.
The Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library has five American Girl dolls that are available to be checked out by library patrons.
Available are Samantha, who lives in the Victorian period; Josefina, who lives in New Mexico in 1824; Addy, from the Civil War period; Kaya, a Northwest Native American living in 1764; and Kit, a young girl growing up during the Great Depression. Each doll comes in a carrying case with a bed, a book and accessories, and may be borrowed for one week. To promote further study about the time period in which each girl lived, a brochure listing books that are available in the library is included with each doll.
Dolls may be checked out by adult Heggan library cardholders. To check availability, please go to the library website. If the doll is unavailable, you can place a hold and you will be notified when it becomes available.
The library also offers the American Girl Book Club for children in grades one through five. This club meets once a month to discuss a selected American Girl book, enjoy a snack and make a craft. Advance online registration is required and limited to Heggan library cardholders.
