Kimball Library News 1/27/14

Winter vacation week for many of the local schools is right around the corner (February 24-March 1.)  Please take advantage of our varied activities and events.  Our regular preschool classes that week except for Mother Goose are set aside for a change of pace.  Do note that some of our events are registration only while others can just be dropped in on.  If you head to our website and click on the calendar events icon you’ll see the details for each activity.  Plan ahead and stay tuned to our weekly press release either here or on the Kimball Library blog.

Monday, February 24th, kicks off our vacation week events.  Children will have a choice of ‘Mother Goose on the Loose’, ‘Wii Party’, or ‘BINGO for Books’.  Details for these events are described below.

‘Mother Goose on the Loose’ generally meets every Monday at 10:30am.  This is an action-packed class where we participate in rhymes, finger plays, songs, scarf and bells activities, circle dances and more.  This is designed from the nationwide curriculum that has a repeating cyclical rhythm to it.  Children must be registered and be committed to weekly participation (understanding that kids are kids and things come up.)  Miss Kathy will have you tapping your toes, chanting poems, and singing in no time!  Registration is required.

Wii Party will be happening on Monday, February 24th, from 12 noon-4pm and youth in grades K-8 are invited to play.  Wii like to party on vacation!  Drop in and play Wii Party or Mario Kart.  There are a variety of games in these two discs and some are as short as 5 minutes, so you don't need a long-term commitment to come play.  Drop in to check it out and feel free to bring your friends for competition.  Preschoolers may try the equipment if parents are hugging distance away and will play the games alongside them.

Also on Monday, February 24th, from 6-7:30pm we’ll be hosting Bingo for Books.  It's always great to play BINGO and go home with a free book, too. This vacation week activity is for children in kindergarten-grade 5. Young children will need an adult to help them play. See how many cards you can manage and how lucky you are! Our book prizes may be new or gently used.  Drop in for a fun evening with your friends.  Come for all or part of the time.

We will be closed on Monday, February 17th, for Presidents' Day.  Stock up accordingly.  You’ll get an extra day with the newest 2 day loan movies.  Ready, set, GO!
