Kimball Library News 9/11/12

Feeling hungry? Be prepared to be educated, delighted, and fed on Monday, October 22th, from 6:30-8pm. Liz Barbour will be back at the Kimball Library sharing her “New Traditions for Thanksgiving” cooking demonstration. Samples of food will be served and recipes will be shared.

Liz's cooking demonstrations help demystify the cooking process by focusing on cooking instructions, knife skills and the healthy benefits of cooking at home while using fresh, local, whole food ingredients. Her cooking demonstrations and recipes have been featured on New Hampshire Chronicle. Liz appears regularly on WMUR Channel's 9 ‘Cooking Corner’, and her recipes are featured in various publications including New Hampshire Magazine. “New Traditions for Thanksgiving” includes a slide presentation of Liz’s adventures at a turkey slaughter (no gore included!)

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library. Registration is required. Space is limited.

Feeling generous toward those who are really hungry? Rockingham Community Action ( is an organization out of Salem that serves the Atkinson/Greater Salem area. They are a full service agency for people in the Greater Salem area, as well as Greater Raymond so people of Atkinson are able to reach out to them for food, fuel assistance, homelessness issues, electrical assistance, just to name a few. We currently have a box in our lobby for you to place non-perishable items to help those in need. Please donate all items by Friday, October 19th. If you are wondering what types of food are needed, primarily canned goods work best. Suggestions would include vegetables, fruit, rice, potatoes, stews, peanut butter, jelly, tuna, mayo, and pasta. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

There’s still time to register for the following: Mother Goose on the Loose, Bitty Books, Kiddie Lit, and Create & Express. These are children’s programs that may almost be full, but we encourage you to get on the waiting list. This helps us to know if we should add a second class of anything, so don’t hesitate to register. Some of our little ones have moved to older classes so we can accommodate more children. We think that having too many registrations is a good problem to have, and we are excited that so many children are interested. None of the preschool classes prohibit starting mid-session so don’t think you’re too late. If you have specific questions regarding the available classes, please ask for Kathy Watson or anyone in the Children’s Room.

One quick reminder for you -- the ‘Book & Bake Sale’ is on Saturday, September 29th, from 8am-3pm. We are still accepting donations until September 28th. Keep ‘em coming!
