Kimball Library News 8/14/12

Got FALL fever? We do!

It’s time to FALL in love with a book discussion group. If you haven’t tried us, we urge you to try one on for size. Available choices are: TWEENS (grades 5-8) who meet the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm; TEENS (high school) who meet the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm; EVENING (adults) who meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6pm; BROWN BAG (2nd – 4th graders) who meet the 4th Mondays at 5:30pm, and MORNING (adults) who meet the 4th Wednesday of each month at 10:15am. Check the online calendar on our website for book titles. We order extra so new folks may join at any time. Got questions? Call (603) 362-5234.

It’s time to FALL in love with the KnitWits. If you haven’t heard, we have a mixed group (different ages and abilities) of knitters that meet each Tuesday and Friday morning at 10:30am. New knitters or knitter wannabees are welcome to join this loveable motley crew. Grab a project and head on over. This is a very informal but informative gathering as the more experienced knitters are always willing to share tips and tricks.

It’s time to FALL into a schedule and register preschool children for classes. We offer Mother Goose on the Loose for infants to age 2 on Mondays at 10:30am, Bitty Books for ages 2 and 3 on Tuesdays at 10:15am, and Kiddie Lit for ages 3-6 on Tuesdays at 11:30am and Thursdays at 10:15am. Register in advance for the fall classes which begin the week of September 10th.

It’s time to FALL in love with children’s events. Try Saturday, September 15th, on for size at 10:15am for ‘Puppets & Music’. Come and meet Miss Gloria and Miss Laura from the Hazel Drive Early Childhood Center in Hampstead! We were entertained last year when they visited us and now they’re coming back with lots of songs to sing, puppets to meet and plenty of fun for everyone! Be sure to save the morning for this special visit geared for preschool- thru 7 years old. Please register so we know if we can count on you. :)

It’s time to FALL clean. Got books? We’ll take them off your hands in preparation for the ‘Fall Book, Bake, and Flea Sale’ that is right around the corner on Saturday, September 22, from 8am-3pm. Please drop off your books, dvds, and audiobooks Monday-Friday 10-8 and Saturday 10-3 except during a holiday closing.

It’s time to plan ahead! We will be closed Labor Day weekend (Saturday, September 1 through Monday, September 3.) Two day loan items checked out on Thursday will not be due back until Tuesday, September 4. Take advantage of the extension and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
