Meet our new American Girl Doll, Ivy!


Meet Ivy! Ivy Ling is a Chinese American girl and comes to us from the distant past of 1970s just like Julie! In fact, Ivy and Julie are best friends (Julie nicknamed her "Poison Ivy"). Ivy loves gymnastic and hates to mess up in front of a crowd. You can read about her in her book "Good Luck, Ivy". Also Ivy plays a major role in Julie's books, Happy New Year, Julie!The Puzzle of the Paper Daughter, and Lost in the City.

If you'd like to borrow Ivy, stop in to the library to check her out, as long as she is available! Each doll can be checked out for a week at at time and you can also borrow accessories and extra clothes!
