This past Saturday ( 2/12) over 35 guests joined us here in Grain Valley to enjoy a wonderful presentation from an American Girl Doll and Tea Party Etiquette expert. She taught the girls about several of the American Girl Dolls and the time period each are from. She also taught the proper etiquette for a tea party. Do you know the difference between High Tea and Low Tea? Or, the proper way to hold your cup while drinking your tea? The young ladies who attended this program now know the answer to these questions and so much more.

I read my first Nancy Drew book, The Mystery of Shadow Ranch, when I was in second grade, and after that I was hooked. Over the course of the next few years, I read every Nancy Drew book I could get my hands on. Now almost 20 years later, I get to host a program at the library celebrating my favorite detective, and I couldn’t be more excited! Hypers!
