This event will be limited to 125 attendees. Tickets are available the day of the event beginning at 10:30 am. The event will start promptly at 11:00 am

On November 11th, both the Felicity™ and Melody™ dolls will be available for checkout at the Barrett Branch Library located at 717 Queen Street. The dolls have been funded by the Friends of Barrett Library in honor of the Library’s 225th Anniversary and the 80th Anniversary of the Alexandria Library Sit-In.

Follow Alexandria Library on Facebook and Twitter @alexlibraryva, as they show Felicity’s™ trip around Alexandria, VA. Perhaps Felicity™ would have found early Alexandria an enticing place to visit with the bustling seaport and shops for a young girl to visit.

For more information, visit the Library’s website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, or contact Vanessa Salo at [email protected].
