American Girl Doll Lending Program

Cherrydale Library and the rest of the county's library system have a program celebrating American Girl Dolls. Girls can use their library cards to borrow an actual American Girl Doll and the books associated with that doll and, through these, learn a bit about American and Arlington history. Place a hold on the doll, just as you would place a hold on a book, and pick it up at Cherrydale Library when it becomes available. For details, go to: https://library.arlingtonva.us/borrow/american-girl/ .
