We’ll talk about how accurate the book is regarding middle school survival, eat sweet treats, and discuss our own middle school stories. This is a great time for new 6th graders to join us. You can sit in and learn all about us!

Do you want to survive eating and preparing healthy foods? Register for “Whole Foods for the Whole Family” taught by Liz Barbour. If you are considering making the shift to a whole foods diet, are curious about how to identify whole foods, or want to learn how to prepare whole food recipes the entire family will love don’t miss Liz Barbour’s cooking demonstration and tasting. Call to reserve your seat. Non-residents may inquire on the day of the program to see if any spaces are available.

Do you want to know how to survive the Saturday doldrums? Pack up the kids and head to Kimball Library on September 17 at 10:30am for our monthly ‘Saturday Cinema’! Children under 6 must be accompanied by a parent while the 6-9 year olds may stay if they’ve been registered and signed for. Ages 10 and up are always welcome. This month’s feature is a new DVD release with an epic battle by heroes trying to save their home from the clutches of the infamous Evil Dr. Doof and his sidekick, Platyburg. There’ll be some catchy tunes as well as the exclusive song ‘I’ll Walk Away.’ Don’t walk, RUN to the library on the 17th!

Do you want to survive visiting and photographing the National Parks? Join us on Tuesday, September 20th, from 6:30-8pm to hear Ron Wybranoski present ‘Dream It! Plan It! Do It! Visiting & Photographing the National Parks’. He will present this multi-media presentation about planning a photo trip to the National Parks. It is a step-by-step guide to setting an itinerary, researching the parks, using maps, guides, books and the web to select your route.

Several useful photo and travel tips will be covered as well as how to create a wish list of specific places to visit and images to take. Besides many of the well-known parks such as Zion, Arches, the Tetons and Yellowstone, many lesser known locations such as the Wave and White Pocket in Southern Utah, Hoodoos, Escalante, Cathedral Valley in Capital Reef, White Sands and Badlands will be discussed.
Ron is a serious amateur photographer and just starting to publicly display his images. His primary focus is on nature photography with a goal of capturing singular images of the beautiful flowers, birds, animals and scenery that surround us all.

Ron has traveled extensively to the National Parks, particularly those in the West. His favorites are the Grand Tetons in the fall, Arches and Canyonlands in the spring, and Zion and Grand Staircase-Escalante anytime he can get there. He is a member of the Merrimack Valley Camera Club (MVCC) in North Andover, MA. He has won many medals and ribbons at MVCC and in regional competitions sponsored by the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC).

How will you survive the library being closed Labor Day weekend from September 3-5? STOCK UP! We’ll be open on Friday, September 2nd until 8pm and then we will re-open on September 6th at 10am.
