Meet Our Newest American Girl Doll: Courtney!

Meet Courtney! Courtney comes to us from the distant past of 1986! (When Miss Emily, our Assistant Director and Children's Librarian, was only a year old!) Courtney loves video games (she has one of the high scores on the Pac-Man machine at the arcade), her guinea pig Parsley, and visiting the mall with her best friend Sarah. You can read about her in her books Courtney Changes the Game and Courtney: Friendship Superhero
