the Samantha doll from the American Girl doll collection. This 18”
beauty is being raffled by the Chichester Library just in time for
the gift-giving season. Donated by Faith DeBold, a
member of the Lovers of the Chichester Library (LOCL), Samantha’s
raffle includes seven books: “Samantha’s Winter Party;” “Samantha
Saves the Day: A Summer Story;” “Samantha’s Surprise;” “Happy
Birthday, Samantha;” “Samantha Learns a Lesson;” “Meet Samantha;”
and “Samantha’s Cooking Studio” (including accessories). She also
has a couple of additional outfits accompanying her.
As one of the original American Girl dolls issued, her production
had been stopped. However, her popularity has resulted
in her reissuance. This doll, however, is one of the original
issue. Samantha is based on a girl from 1904, and her stories
reflect that. However, books written since 1995 have expanded that
focus to include a more current perspective.
With a motto of, “Today is my chance to help others,” Samantha seems
to embody the spirit of the Library and those who support it. Your
purchase of raffle tickets will help the Library continue to support
its investments in technology, and you just might win this beauty!
