Kimball Library News 11/1/11

Got your game on? Celebrate the 4th National Gaming Day with us on Saturday, November 12th, from 11am-2pm. Communities across the U.S. (and internationally!) are coming together in the spirit of play for the American Library Association’s 4th Annual National Gaming Day @ your library, sponsored by FamilyandPartyGames.com. This year’s event expects to draw more than 20,000 people at more than 1,200 libraries. All ages enjoy games. Stop in and find a Wii game or a board game for your level.

Got your pen in hand? The Kimball Library Writing Group meets the second Monday of every month.

This is a great opportunity to share your writing with others to discuss and critique. Each writing session will be facilitated. This is a judgment free zone for writers of all levels and a great time for you to try out your writing with others. Drop in on Monday, November 14th, and get your pen rolling.
Got words? The teens do! Teens in grades 6-12 should check it out ‘Words with Teens’ on Tuesday, November 15th, from 6:30-7:30pm.

Got pooch fever? Meet Lady Hawke, the reader dog! Register now to come and read with Hawke on Wednesday, November 16th, from 4-5pm. This wonderful 9 year old Labrador retriever is very patient and loves being read to by children. Hawke is a certified therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International and loves her visits with new and experienced readers. When she's not reading, Hawke lives in Plaistow with her sister and brother Labs and human family.

‘The dog encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather sit next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.' (from Therapy Dogs International)

Got holiday fever? We have the program for you on Monday, November 21, from 6-8pm. Register and learn to make a cornucopia arrangement. Enjoy a creative night out by learning how to arrange fresh flowers in a Fall Cornucopia (horn of plenty basket) perfect for Thanksgiving. Class is limited to 20 people and the materials fee of $25 must be paid in advance. Please sign up at the circulation desk.

Got moves? We don’t, but Nelson Barrios does! Learn the basics at ‘Karate for Kids’! Nelson Barrios will be here to introduce karate to two age levels of children. There will be opportunities for ages 5-7 from 4:00-4:45pm and for ages 7-10 from 4:45-5:30pm. In between, there will be a Numchuck demonstration for all to see the skills that are developed using Karate. Wear comfortable clothing and come to enjoy the sport. Register for this event, please. You may call us or do this online.

Please note that we will be closed in November on Friday, November 11th, (Veterans Day) and Thursday, November 24th and Friday the 25th (Thanksgiving break). We ARE open on Saturday the 26th for our usual 10am-3pm hours.
