Kimball Library News 12/6/11

The third upcoming ‘Holiday Drop n’ Shop’ still has a few places available on Saturday, December 17th, from 10:30am-1:00pm. We’ll show the movie promptly at 10:30am to be followed by a craft that will take a bit of time. For this craft you MUST bring a plain pillowcase to decorate. The craft starts at noon, but we DO have a guest from the North Pole that is expected to interrupt the festivities as well as some cherubic voices so our ending time may not be exact. But we’d still like you to return by 1pm in case your little angel is ready and waiting.

Please note that we require waivers for children ages 6-9 and you may not just drop them off even if they have been pre-registered. ***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. In any case, ALL AGES MUST REGISTER.

On this particular Saturday Holiday Drop n’ Shop, there are variations to the prior Saturdays. 1. The MOVIE: The Santa Incident (88 min)/CRAFT: Festive holiday pillowcase. (Your second reminder—you MUST bring a pillowcase with you in order to participate.) Please indicate 'YES' on the online registration form if you plan to stay for the craft when you sign up for this activity.

Don’t let December slip away without fun and furry opportunities to increase your child’s literacy. For the last time in 2011, Lady Hawke the reader dog will be here on Wednesday, December 21st, from 4-5pm. Hawke is a very busy black Lab who loves to be read to by readers of all ages. Her time at the library requires registration so that everyone will get a turn and that Hawke doesn’t break up her day unnecessarily. Throw Hawke a bone by registering and attending her literary circle. She’ll definitely wag her tail for that!

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. We are doing everything we can do serve you best.

Take care to note that regularly scheduled preschool story times as well as the Friday Night Read & Feed will take a rest over the vacation week and a bit into the New Year. There will be more information on that in future articles. Do not take a rest from getting some books for everyone, it’s just that you’ll have to do the reading and prepare the craft for a few weeks.

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!
