Local students came to the library for a 'Getting Ready for Prom Event'. Many dresses were donated by various members of the community and 'Time After Time Boutique' of Winsted. The attendees were able to shop for a dress right here in the Teen room at no cost. Teens tried on different dresses and took home the dress that they liked the best.
There was also a live hair styling demonstration, courtesy of 'Simplicity Hair Salon' of Winsted. Set up on the other side of the room was a corsage making station, where the teens made their own creations to match their dresses. Mrs. Lisa Goulet of Batcheller school helped students with their corsages.
The library is grateful for all of the many generous donations from the community such as; gift certificates, coupons, and donated gift items for the teens at Beardsley. These contributions were courtesy of ; 'Men's WearHouse' of Simsbury, 'T&T Perfect Nails' of Winsted, 'Time After Time Boutique' of Winsted, our neighbor 'Dunkin Donuts', and 'Simplicity Hair Salon' of Winsted. Thank you to everyone who helped out to make this a special day for our students!!
