Get a Free American Girl Book at NYPL

New York Public Library branches are getting all dolled up thanks to American Girl, who has donated $1 million in American Girl books to The New York Public Library branches in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.

In addition to the books, the company also donated one doll to every New York Public Library children’s room, and a set of books to each branch to be placed in circulation.

The book giveaway is part of a major, multi-faceted donation from American Girl to The New York Public Library in celebration of their new store, American Girl Place, opening in Rockefeller Plaza on November 11.

Beginning Nov 3, any child or teen with a New York Public Library card or who signs up for a card at their local branch will be eligible to bring home and keep one of the 100,000 books (while supplies last).

Any New York State resident is eligible for a New York Public Library card; a parent or caregiver must be with a child 12 or under signing up for a card.

The book giveaway not only encourages children to read, but to obtain library cards and visit their local branches, which offer a wide range of books, materials, programs, and classes – all for free.
