American Girl Dolls are a contemporary phenomenon that teaches young girls about periods in American history by telling the stories from the perspective of young girls living in that time period. The American Girl stories cover topics such as poverty, racism, and war, and present these topics in way that young girls can understand. Each American Girl Doll comes with its own line of clothing, accessories, and storybooks.

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.
A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.
