The First American Friend Library Party was held on Tuesday, Aug. 1. The event featured an elegant tea party with special etiquette leaders Belle and Mrs. Pots.

Guests learned to fold napkins and how to introduce themselves and their dolls. The American Girl Store in The Dallas Galleria were supporters of this tea party and provided games and books and more.

There are now four American Girl dolls, including the new Logan boy doll, that can be checked out for two weeks from the library. The Library also has books available to go out with them.

The Friends of the Melissa Public Library are also sponsoring a raffle for the 2016 Girl of the Year, Lea. She is brand-new in her original box. Raffle tickets are available from the library staff for $10 each. The winner will be drawn at the FOMPL Art Show on Saturday, Aug. 26, at 10:00 a.m.
