Once Upon a Formal is an ongoing formal and semiformal dress loaning program geared toward teens. We collect gently used and clean dress donations and store them in our cloak closet until someone needs to borrow a dress. They have the loan for up to one month. We reserve the right to turn away dirty and torn dresses, and we ask that anyone who borrows a dress have it cleaned before returning it.
Teenagers at this rural Minnesota library can check out dresses with just a library card.
