Discover what life was like in Alexandria with American Girl™ characters! This virtual program will feature a different American Girl each month. We will read an excerpt from their book, craft, and play trivia games. January will feature Samantha Parkington™ and what the early 20th century like for Alexandria.
Watch the program video on our YouTube channel. Make sure to be on the lookout for an extra baking video with Miss Lisa who will show us how to make recipes from the American Girl™ books!
Craft kits are available to take home. All kits include two crafts - one for you and one for your doll or stuffed animal. Kits also include craft instructions, prizes, and fact sheets about Alexandria's local history.
Schedule a curbside appointment to pick up your Samantha™ craft supply kit - just write "SAMANTHA KIT" in the notes field. Kits can also be picked up in person at the Kate Waller Barrett children's reference desk while supplies last. Ask any staff member for help. One kit per child. No substitutions. Craft kits are available beginning January 22. Kits are only available at the Kate Waller Barrett Branch.
