Kimball Library News 11/22/11

Take care not to miss out on registrations for programs as we may have a space or materials limit. This would be particularly true of popular children’s or teen events as well as adult programs that may draw a large crowd. Don’t be disappointed—register early.

You can still register to make a boxwood tree with Felicia Motherway. You’ll have a beautiful long-lasting, elegantly designed holiday tree made out of boxwood and decorated with velvet ribbon, gold glass balls, berries and natural gypsophila. Pay when you register. This class will take place on Thursday, December 1, from 6-8pm.

The upcoming first ‘Holiday Drop n’ Shop’ still has places available. We’ll show movie to be followed by a simple craft. Please send the kids with movie snacks and spill-proof beverages. Pillows are also welcome if they prefer to sprawl out rather than sit in chairs. You’ll fa la la all the way home! (Please note that we require waivers for children ages 6-9.) ***Children under the age of 6 are welcome to stay for the movie and activities, but a parent or adult supervisor must stay in the building. ALL AGES MUST REGISTER. MOVIE: All-Nighter Before Christmas (99 min)/CRAFT: Sparkling Holiday Ornament. Indicate 'YES' on the online registration form if you plan to stay for the craft when you register. This event will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, from 10:30am-12:30pm.

Registration is also required for the upcoming ‘T/ween Holiday No-Bake, Bake-Off!’ taking place on Tuesday, December 20th, from 6:30-8pm. The Teen Holiday 'No-Bake, Bake-Off!' rules are fairly simple. You can make a drink, appetizer or dessert that has a December holiday theme. It has to be primarily made in the library and you can use our microwave to heat up your creation. If you want to do some prep at home that is acceptable. You are allowed to bring your own blender. You have thirty minutes to create your entry. You may work alone or with a partner, and you must be sure to bring everything you need for materials.

The judges will consider presentation, creativity and tastiness as their criteria and rate each category on a scale of 1-5. At the end, the highest score wins a 'cheap and worthless' prize. The judges will not allow a tie. After the judging is over, you'll be able to sample your competitors’ creations while they sample yours. This event is open only to youth in grades 5-12.

Please note that we are in the midst of change that requires more staff education and training than can be done is just a few hours, so we need to close the building to the public on Thursday, December 15th. Please forgive us in advance as this is not our custom.

Also, we’ll be closed for holiday hours at the end of the month of December on Saturday, December 24th and on Monday, December 26th. Happy Holidays to everyone.
