Shalom! Our American Girl Book Club traveled back to 1914 in New York City when they met Russian Jewish girl Rebecca Rubin.

Our girls lot to learn about Rebecca while Rebecca learned about balancing her family’s traditions with her own new ideas.

Dolls are welcome at our American Girl Book Club, but you don't need one to join.

Dolls are welcome at our American Girl Book Club, but you don’t need one to join.

Each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book each month and explore a different moment in American history. Then we make a craft and play games that tie into the book, character or era that we discussed.

For example, in July, we made scratch art dreidels and menorahs.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then they can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Aug. 7 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Samantha.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221

Our American Girl Book Club had a busy February – time traveling back to the cusp of the Revolutionary War to meet Felicity and then leaping forward to 1812 to introduce themselves to Caroline.

You see, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book each month and explore a different moment in American history. (Sometimes, we get ambitious and visit two moments, as we did this month.)

Then we make a craft and play games that tie into the book, character or era that we discussed.

For example, in February, we played ninepins and decorated paper fans.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then they can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on March 6 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Josefina.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221

Our American Girl Book Club traveled back to the era of victory gardens and rubber rationing when they met Molly McIntire this month.

They also learned how American girls lived during World War II.

And because Molly dressed like a hula girl for Halloween in her book, the girls also made their own leis and learned how to dance the hula.

On the first Wednesday of each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book. Then we make a craft and play games that tie into the book, character or era.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then they can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Nov. 7 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Maryellen

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

Our American Girl Book Club met Cecile and Marie-Grace and used their books to take a trip down to New Orleans. And, if we’re in N’awlins, we might as well party like it’s Mardi Gras!

So the girls made Mardi Gras masks, as well as friendship bracelets.

Some of the girls show off their finished masks.
