Kimball Library News 12/18/12

Preschool parents—please remember that there are no classes the week of Christmas or New Years.  All the preschool classes (Mother Goose on the Loose, Bitty Books, and Kiddie Lit) will resume the week of January 6th.  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.  Children who registered in the fall for any of our preschool classes are still considered registered unless you have asked to remove them, so if you attend a Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday class and plan to continue, you do not need to register your child again for that.

Start the new year right with a commitment or a re-commitment to book discussion.  That’s what resolutions are all about, right?  You can come in and get a book for any discussion.  In January we are hosting the following:
~Tweens (grades 5-8) on January 2 will be discussing ‘When you Reach Me’ by Rebecca Stead.
~Teens (grades 9-12) on January 9 will be discussing ‘Looking for Alaska’ by John Green.
~Evening adults on January 15 at 6pm will be discussing ‘Destiny of the Republic’ by Candace Millard.
~Morning adults on January 23 at 10:15am will be choosing books for the year in their December gathering.  Please call the library and ask for the title after December 26th.
~Brown bag book clubbers on January 28 at 5:30pm will be discussing ‘Eve of the Emperor Penguin’ by Mary Pope Osborne

Start 2013 on the right note by giving your child some musical education!  Come Meet the Flute’!  In this introductory series of classes we will have fun while developing musical thinking and listening skills.  We'll play lots of musical games and find out how the flute makes its sound.  This is a hands-on active class that requires caretaker and child participation.  This is a 3 week commitment and is by registration only.

We are offering 2 distinct sessions of this class.  Tootie Flutes I is geared for children ages 3-5 and is from 2:00-2:30pm.  Tootie Flutes II is for children ages 5-7 and is from 3:30-4:00pm.    Musician and teacher, Judy Teehan, will be instructing the classes.  ***When you register, you are enrolling for 3 consecutive Wednesdays at the same time.  This is a requirement for signing up.

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!
