KXNT 840 AM: Library District Announces New Toy Lending Program Featuring Dolls

LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - When you think public library, most don't think about dolls. The Clark County Library District is thinking about dolls.

As part of its mission to support childhood learning, development—and fun(!)—the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District is establishing a new Toy Lending Program, featuring 200 dolls from the popular American Girl doll collection.
