The Exeter Public Library hosted a “Fancy Nancy” tea party on the afternoon of Saturday April 11.  Guests were invited to come in “fancy” desire if they chose. 
Librarian Jessica Votipka was the hostess for the afternoon tea party and welcomed the guests with a game of match the tea cup to the saucer.  The attendees were invited to pick an antique china tea cup and then find the saucer that matched it before bringing the set to the table to begin the tea.
Pink punch and graham  cracker cookies were served to the young ladies who attended the event. While they enjoyed the tea, Votipka read a new book to them, “Fancy Nancy and the Delectable Cupcakes,” written by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser.
The girls enjoyed the book and laughed and Nancy’s antics.  After the punch and cookies were finished the girls got to choose a tiara and decorate it with glitter glue and sparkling stones.
The final portion of the afternoon was time for pictures in a photo booth that Votipka had created.  The girls enjoyed having the picture in their dressed up fashion.
Votipka planned the event to coincide with the celebration of National Library Week and the theme of “Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library.”
