Kimball Library News 12/9/13

We are leaping into the new year with ‘A Leap To Freedom:  Boston Harbor 1989’ right here on Tuesday, January 14th, from 7-8pm.  Atkinson resident, Edward Polonka, will share his journey from Communist Poland to citizenship in the US.  Author, Lynda Healey from Haverhill, MA has published a book on this incredible journey.  The author, Lynda M. Healey, will also be available to answer questions and sign copies of the book.  Books will be available for sale that evening.  Copies are also available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

We are leaping into the new year with a t/ween book discussion (Grades 5 - 12) on Wednesday, January 8th, from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss Soldier Boys by Dean Hughes.  The meeting is a joint venture this month because the first Wednesday of January falls on the holiday.

‘At the age of fifteen, Dieter's blind devotion gets him promoted from Hitler Youth into the German army. Dieter's determined to prove his allegiance and bravery all costs.

Spence, just sixteen, drops out of his Utah high school to begin training as a paratrooper. He's seen how boys who weren't much in high school can come home heroes, and Spence wants to prove to his friends and family that he really can be something.

Their worst fear was that the war would end too soon -- that they wouldn't get the chance to prove themselves. But when they finally see the action they were hoping for, it's like nothing they could have ever imagined.

 Refreshments and thought-provoking conversation will be served. All interested mature 5th graders, middle school & high school students are welcome. (Not young adults, not children -- hence, TWEENagers in grades 5-12.) Please ask for a copy of the current book at the front desk.

We are leaping into the new year with more tech tutorials!  You can have a brief  lesson here on your tech toy (Kindle, iPad, iPod, Nook or other device compatible with Overdrive) to learn how to put an e-book on it.  This is a basic tutorial for newbies and they are for 30 minutes for one person (or two if you are couple). Got questions?  Ask for Kathy Watson at (603) 362-5234.  (Kimball Library resident card holders in good standing only, please.)

The library has some unique holiday hours coming up.  We will be open only from 10am-2pm on December 24th, closed on December 25th, open only from 10am-3pm on December 31st, and closed on January 1, 2014.  Please stock up accordingly.  Items due on the 24th or the 31st must be in the library before closing.  Thanks to all of you for your cooperation and understanding, and have a happy and blessed holiday season!
