Kimball Library News 5/13/13

Registration for all summer reading programs (preschool), (elementary), and (t/weens—middle/high school) begins on Monday, June 17th.  Each year there is a bit of confusion regarding this process so we proactively start to explain the semantics now.  To be included in the summer reading program, registration is required for all age groups. Individual events for various age groups will also require registration as the events have a maximum capacity, and food or craft supplies need to be purchased in advance.  We take care not to over-purchase for our events. Please take note to register for the program as a whole, but also to register for each individual event that your child plans to attend.

We truly appreciate cancellations being called in because some other child may be on a waiting list for an event and that spot in reality is being taken by someone not actually attending.  More information regarding all the programs will be forthcoming, but definitely note that you may begin general registration on June 17th.  Registration for the program as a whole is ongoing until July 26th, however, the sooner you begin the sooner you child can begin to win prizes. 

Stay tuned……. Toe Jam Puppet Band is coming to town!  Toe Jam Puppet Band performs all year round in venues all over New England. Their zany brand of original music gets all who come up dancing and smiling!  This variety show will please any age who has a sense of fun and humor in their bones.  Bring a smile and be prepared to tap your toes!  Registration is not required.  Bring Grandma, bring your friends, and bring your brother.  We've got something for everyone.  This is the official 2013 kick-off into summer reading!

We'll be meeting with ‘Toe Jam’ on the patio lawn and hill at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 27th, at 6:30pm.  In case of inclement weather this event will be held at Atkinson Academy.  This event is sponsored by the Elizabeth Smith Estate.

We will be closed Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 25 through Monday, May 27.)  Two day loan items checked out on Thursday the 23rd will not be due back until May 28th.  Take advantage of the extension and have a safe and happy holiday weekend. Top of Form
