In case you missed it, on the front page of today’s New York Times is the amazing story of Kirsten the American Girl Doll who has been in circulation with little girls at the Ottendorfer Branch of The New York Public Library for 8 years!!!! It’s an amazing story about a library, a librarian, and a community. 

Just so good.

    I read this last night and teared up a little bit. I hope it inspires Mattel to donate more dolls to libraries across...

    I just love stories about non-traditional circulation.
