Kimball Library News 3/5/13

We are jumping for joy that in the spring Kimball Library will be employing a library page as a paid position.  To start, we will be hiring one within the next week or so, and in the future we may be hiring another.  The page position will be for Atkinson teens starting at age 16 and up who still attend high school.   If you are interested in this kind of work and are an Atkinson teen that fits the criteria, please stop by the library and fill out an application form.  We will keep your application on file for at least 6 months as possible new positions open up.  Preference will be given to students with library skills and library participation.

Spring is about new things, but if it’s old to us and new to you, isn’t it new?  Please note that we have the following events below in place for adults.  If you haven’t tried them yet, they are new to you!

MONDAYS:  Mahjong (registration required), WEEKLY, 1:00pm-4:30pm (Currently taking MORE NEW players!!)  Whether you are a novice or an experienced Mahjong player, come join the fun!  We have someone who is willing to teach you to play if you never have had the experience.  Cozy up, share some laughs, and make some new friends.  All experience levels are welcome.  Registration is required so we’ll know how many tables to prepare.  Please sign up online or give us a call.

TUESDAYS:  Dabblers WEEKLY, 10:15am-12:00pm (Taking MORE crafty people!!) 
Beginners, intermediate or advanced painters are welcome to join our group of Dabblers.  Bring your projects and paint supplies to work along with our informal and friendly art enthusiasts or we will help start anyone wishing to begin watercolor, oils, acrylic or drawing.  Drop in and join us!

TUESDAYS & FRIDAYS:  KnitWits WEEKLY, 10:30am-12:00pm (Taking MORE crafty people!!)
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter, come join the fun as we learn together.  Please bring your own supplies.  This is an informal gathering to finish those unfinished projects or perhaps get ideas for beginning some new ones.  We’ll cozy up in the Atkinson Room of the library, share some laughs, drop a stitch or two, and make some new friends.  All experience levels and ages welcome.  You are welcome to attend either or both days.

3rd TUESDAY of each month: ‘Evening Book Discussion’ Tuesday, March 19, 6:00-7:00pm
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month to discuss the chosen title.  We always welcome new folks.  Please stop by and give us a try.  Ask for a copy of the book of the month at the front desk.  This month’s book is ‘Unbroken’

FRIDAYS: Wii play, too! (Adults only, please) WEEKLY, 10:30am-12:00pm
Adults are invited to play Wii Sports on our Wii system.  Here's your golden opportunity to compete and play games. This is a great time to come participate or observe.  Wii will give you the opportunity to try the virtual sports available, but the current crowd loves bowling the best.  Come for part or all of the time allotted.  This is an adult event.  Invite your friends and make some new ones while you’re here.
