Assistant library director Lynn Wiercinski reads a Fancy Nancy tale to 29 young ladies, along with mothers and grandmothers, at the Ironwood Memorial Building Thursday.

The party was held in the women’s club rooms on the second floor of the Ironwood Memorial Building, which provided an elegant setting.

Assistant library director Lynn Wiercinski read the young ladies a story. She told the girls, “Being unique is even better than being perfect.”

The girls dined on tea party fare of grapes and cheese, strawberries, cookies, cakes, marshmallow treats and lemonade.

Each girl was gifted a necklace, crown bracelet and ring.

The library has a scrapbook of past Fancy Nancy tea parties, and the young ladies who attended this year’s event were invited to get their pictures taken for the scrapbook.
