When Rachel Ezrin was younger, she loved playing with her American Girl dolls Molly and Kaya and reading all of the American Girl books.

“I was your typical American Girl doll fan,” she said.

She is now a senior at Abington Heights High School and although she no longer plays with dolls, she still shares a love of American Girl with kids who are fans today. That is one reason why she, along with Emma Musto and the Teen Leadership Committee at the Abington Community Library, are organizing an American Girl Celebration for all fans of American Girl.

The celebration will be held at the Abington Community Library April 28 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend, and all girls are invited, whether they own an American Girl doll or not. A raffle in which one person will win Saige, the newest American Girl doll, is underway at the library’s circulation desk to raise money for the Teen Leadership Committee.

Girls who attend the celebration will learn about different times in history through activities, refreshments crafts and more.

For example, Ezrin said one American Girl character, Rebecca, is Jewish and grew up in 1914, so there will be a Jewish snack to taste and a Jewish song to learn during the event.

Ezrin said her favorite time period in American History is the early 1700s because she loves learning about Native American culture and history.

She said the best thing about American Girl is “they teach history in a way that is exciting and relatable to the young girls who read these books.”
