Kimball Library News 7/31/12

THEY DID IT! The teens submitted 822 reading tickets to the raffle jar (at the time of this publication) and the Youth Services Director has an appointment (courtesy of Janet Porter of Online Hair Salon) for Thursday, August 2nd. Readers should stop in as soon as possible before the hair fades with camera in tow. The Youth Services Director will say ‘cheese’ with you sporting her new purple and pink stripes. (We admit she is doing this with a little less enthusiasm than we’d like-haha.) We encourage you to upload any photos of this or any summer reading library photographs that you have taken to the Kimball Library facebook page. There are a number of photos on there right now that could use tagging. Congratulations to “Own the Night” t/weens, you proved you are NUMBER ONE! Kathy is already planning some crazy stunt for next year’s challenge, but note she will NOT shave her head. ;)

We will take an additional line here to please note that the absolute last day to turn in reading minutes in the children’s room is August 9th. All our kites will be flying away off the wall whether they are complete or not. We’d love it if you’d come pick yours up. 

Thank you to the many businesses and friends that have made our 2012 Summer Reading Programs a success! We appreciate all the contributions. It does take a community to raise a tremendous summer reading program. The children, tweens, and teens were grateful and excited to receive great prizes.
