Fancy Nancy Tea Party

On Saturday January 24th the library hosted a Fancy Nancy Tea Party. The guests came dressed in the fanciest outfits and we had tea and cookies and we even made fancy purses! Miss Denise & Miss Katie had a great time reading Fancy Nancy stories and talking with the guests about tea parties.
