Please know that there is a traveling doll and book exhibit available to borrow for free beginning March 2009. This is particularly great for public and school libraries.
It is free to borrow and is sponsored by Region 15 of the United Federation of Doll Clubs (an international non-profit educational organization). Region 15 consists of Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire. Items in the collection consist of cloth dolls, plush animals and children’s books. Characters from the books are represented by the dolls and animals in the exhibit. It was started in 1999 and has made many stops Â in the New England area.
I am the scheduling coordinator for the exhibit, keep the calendar and stay in touch with borrowing libraries. My goal Â is to have any libraries in Vermont who may be interested in hosting the exhibit (for about a month at a time) be able to do so. Some libraries have had a similar exhibit visit their site but there are many that have not.
This is a fun, multi-generational exhibit that libraries can display to engage patrons and encourage reading. Please inquire about it. I am happy to answer any questions.
