Kimball Library News 12/11/12

Due to the popularity of our preschool classes, starting in January of 2013 we are adding an additional ‘Kiddie Lit’ slot to the mix on Friday mornings.  The first available class is on January 11, 2013. Crafts, music, rhyme, new friends and adventures into literacy will be found during these classes geared for children ages 3-6.  Try this new class time starring our newest youth services teacher, Miss Celeste!  Her class will be organized thematically and you’ll be able to look online to see what the general theme for the day is.  Classes will be held on Fridays from 10:15-11:00am. If you sign up, we consider you registered for the entire session.  Please send us an email or call if you cannot attend.  You may be taking a space away from someone else.  Thank you for your cooperation.

You will probably be ready to take a little vacation after the flurry of the holidays, and we have just the place for you to try.  Mark your calendar for Tuesday, January 15th at 6:30pm to travel to the Galapagos Islands.  Journey down to the equator and explore Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands through the camera lens of Dennis Krause.  He and his wife recently visited the Galapagos with Lindblad Expeditions for an adventure of a lifetime.   Their voyage aboard the National Geographic “Islander” traveled to seven different islands home to many species of mammals, reptiles and birds.   Each island was inhabited by a unique group of creatures ranging from playful sea lions and sea turtles to primitive marine iguanas and giant tortoises to colorful blue-footed boobies and magnificent frigate birds.  Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and see up close and personal what he observed years ago and what makes the Galapagos Islands the very special place it is today.  Join Dennis and his visual presentation of his day to day experiences on this ageless group of islands…The Galapagos.  Refreshments will be served on this unique travel odyssey and, as most library events are - this program is sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library.

Mah Jong Mondays has been such a popular event on Monday afternoons that you may be dying to get in on the action.  Our initial fall class was so full we had a waiting list.  Now the newbies are not so new and we have added a few more games so we can take a few more registrations.  The class size will increase starting January 7th, but you can register now by going online or by giving us a call.  The games are played every Monday afternoon that we are open from 1:00-4:30pm.  For those who play each week, please note Mah Jong will not be in session on either Dec 24th or 31st.  See you in 2013!

Please be aware that the library will be closed for a few days during the holiday season.  We are closed for Christmas on both December 24 and 25, but we will be open for limited hours New Year’s Eve (10am-3pm) on December 31, and closed for New Year’s Day – January 1.  Happy holidays to all our fantastic customers regardless of what traditions you are celebrating!
