Kimball Library News 11/29/11

The second upcoming ‘Holiday Drop n’ Shop’ still has places available on Saturday, December 10th, from 10:30am-12:30pm. We’ll show the movie first to be followed by a simple craft. Generally, the craft starts at noon. 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. (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. On this particular Saturday, the MOVIE: A Golden Christmas: The Second Tail (90 min)/CRAFT: Wooden holiday coasters. Indicate 'YES' on the online registration form if you plan to stay for the craft when you register.

If you are looking for a bit of theatre this season, let us remind you that we have passes available for the Merrimack Repertory Theatre. ‘The Ultimate Christmas Show’ is playing from 11/25-12/18 and our pass entitles you to $10 off each ticket (limit of 6). The tickets must be ordered in person or over the phone with the theater and with our ID #. Please give us a call with your questions at (603) 362-5234.

Are you considering an e-reader purchase in the near future for yourself or as a gift? If so, we do have Kindles available for you to try out for two weeks that have pre-loaded titles (40 at present count). This is a handy way to find out if this type of device is for you. In case you are unaware, we are part of a state-wide consortium that has ebooks available for compatible readers such as the Nook, Sony, and Kindle through OverDrive. In addition to the consortium, we have purchased ebooks that are part of that pool just for Kimball Library card holders. There also are apps available for the iPad and iPouch touch with this same service. You can download and read ebooks without charge. The links will automatically expire after two weeks unless you decide to send them back early. Why pay for books if you can get them from us? Visit our website and click on ‘Downloadable Books’ for information regarding device compatibility as well as the myriad of title choices. Make an informed decision before purchasing. Please also know that this service is available for audiobooks as well with a list of compatible audio devices right on the website. Keep up with free choices for your techie toys with us.

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. We will also be closed on Monday, January 2nd. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!
