Check it out: Va. library starts lending dolls

(Continued)

ARLINGTON, Va. —

Karell said the library has just received additional money for the program and plans to buy more dolls. She said the library staff also hopes that community members will eventually donate dolls that are no longer played with.

"We don't want it to be such a long time to wait for the dolls that it would be discouraging," Karell said.

News of the lending program has prompted some library patrons to check out the books, which the library has had in its collection for years.

"Our whole goal is to get people into the library," Karell said. "This is a way to connect kids with books and with history."
