More than a dozen young children filled the Stonecrest Library’s children’s’ room for its first Fancy Nancy tea party on Saturday, Sept. 22. Attendees age 3 and up came dressed to impress in frilly frocks, tiaras, hats and gloves – and a crown, donned by the only boy to attend the event. The children were captivated as Stonecrest librarian, Mickey Harvey, who heads the library’s children’s department, led the program.
In addition to learning various aspects of tea etiquette, the tea session included beverages, snacks and a reading of the children’s book, Fancy Nancy , written by Jane O’Connor. The story follows the life of a young girl with a larger-than-life personality who adores all things fancy.
