Kimball Library News 7/24/12

‘Come Dance with Us’ on Thursday, August 2, from 6:00-8:00pm. Come learn some of the dances you see on the popular TV show ‘Dancing With the Stars’. Dancers from the Krystal Ballroom Dance Studio will be here to demonstrate and teach dances like the Cha Cha, Rumba, Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Salsa, Swing, Samba, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz and some popular line dances. Bring your dancing shoes and join us for a fun free night of dancing! This event is meant for all ages who love to move!

There will be a 30 minute intermission where summer reading raffle prizes will be drawn or distributed at 6:30pm. We are mixing up how we end our summer reading program. Everyone is welcome to attend—raffle prizes are only for summer reading participants. Ice cream sundaes will be on the menu as is our tradition after we draw raffle prizes. Hot dogs, popcorn, and drinks will also be served as part of the larger gala. This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

LAST CALL SUMMER READERS—All summer reading programs are coming to a close. Get those reading logs in for the little ones and have your teens and tweens get their t/ween reading tickets in the jar! It’s looking scary for the youth services director. She’s pretty sorry she promised to stripe her hair pink and purple if there are 700 tickets in the t/ween jar. Do you think they will win? FIND OUT on August 2nd. If the kids win, she’ll have a new look after 2pm.

Teen and tween readers unite! In the summer we have a combination book discussion for grades 5-12. It’s not easy to find a book that spans those ages, but we think “Gregor the Overlander” by Suzanne Collins hits the mark. When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it -- until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.

Please register for this discussion (so we’ll know how much candy to buy) and attend on Wednesday, August 8th,from 6:30-7:30pm. Last month we had 16 in attendance. Let’s break a new record!

Uno’s Dough Raiser! Make a date for Uno’s on August 16th! Go to Uno's (Haverhill/Plaistow line) anytime on August 16th from 11:30am to closing and the Friends of the Kimball Library will get up to 20% of your total bill. This is also good on take-out orders. All you have to do is pick up a coupon at the Kimball Library and give it to the hostess when placing your order. This is GREAT way to support all those events you love to attend at the library. Bring your friends out to lunch or dinner with you! We plan to be there at various times throughout the day and night. Stop in for chow and chat. :)
