Kimball Library News 6/3/13

On Thursday, June 27, from 6:30-7:30pm we will ‘DIG’ the TOE JAM PUPPET BAND (all ages) Summer Reading Program KICK-OFF! Bring your family and friends and join us on the patio lawn for live entertainment. This particular show does not demand registration, nor do you have to be a resident to take part.  In case of inclement weather, we’ll go to Atkinson Academy. 

General registration for all summer reading programs begins on June 17th.  It will be faster and easier for you to register or collect prizes if you don’t do it immediately before or after one of our busy activities.  We want to give you our full attention during registration or prize collection. 

For the next several months we’ll be highlighting up and coming summer reading events.  Please refer to our website or library calendar icon for more information.  Don’t hesitate to call us or ask questions about any of the many activities.  Do note that we are continuing to offer summer classes for babies to age 2 (Mother Goose on the Loose), children ages 2-3 (Bitty Books) and preschoolers age 3-6 (Kiddie Lit).  Register in advance for those classes now.

After the excitement of registration and the SRP Kick-Off with Toe Jam Puppet Band, we’ll be rolling out an array of activities each week until August 8 to satisfy a variety of ages.  First up on the docket on Monday, July 1, will be our ‘We DIG Big Trucks Night’ starting at 6:30pm.  This is one of our few events that does not require registration.  Most ‘kids’ anywhere between the ages of 2 and 200 enjoy a chance to see the big rigs up close and personal.  Speed on down to see the fire trucks, tractors, road equipment, and everything big and loud that kids all love! It's all right here in a line, to climb on and enjoy, and according to one source - maybe blow a horn! We are so grateful that our community helpers love the idea of sharing their vehicles with us.  This is a great night to get to say hello to our friends who do the road, police, or fire work in town.  Come on down!

All ages are reminded to stop by for some lovely summer tunes right in our patio area on Thursday, June 20th, at 6:30pm.   We are fortunate to have the fine musicians of the Timberlane Community Band.  The concert will take place in the library courtyard.  Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the music!  *If there is a chance of rain, the TCB will make a decision by 4:00 PM to cancel the show.
