Kimball Library News 5/5/14

Please consider joining the lively evening book discussion group that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6pm.  They are very interested in having some new people in their midst.  This month on Tuesday, May 20th, they will be discussing the novel ‘Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet’ by Jamie Ford.  We have extra copies available at the main desk, but you don’t have to have read the book to just drop in and listen.  Spring into action and plan to be there!

Tweens and teens, come join us at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 5th for cookies and a captivating discussion about the novel, “The Power of Poppy Pendle” with the author, Natasha Lowe!

Ten-year-old Poppy, born to ordinary parents, has inherited coveted witch power. In Poppy’s world, witches work for good and are much valued, but Poppy does not want to be a witch—she wants to be a baker, and she is extremely good at baking. Her parents insist Poppy follow in the footsteps of her great aunt, a famous witch, but Poppy has plans of her own.

Part magic, part adventure, and wholly delicious, this spirited story includes more than a dozen recipes you can try at home.

Please ask for a copy of the book at the front desk.   Don’t forget to be awesome and register!  You’ll be even more awesome if you can convince a friend to register and come with you.  And guess what else? At the event, Natasha Lowe will be selling signed copies of the book at a reduced author cost. [Tweens, this is in lieu of our first Wednesday discussion.  Please join us or the teen discussion the following Wednesday.  Or go all out and go to both!]

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner.  This is one of the two Saturdays a year that we will not be open.  We will be closed May 24-26.  Plan to stock up on those 2 day movies!  Take them on the 23rd and you get to keep them until the 28th!

Please check out our facebook page, please ‘like’, tag, and share our photos or events.  It’s also terrific when you upload photos of your own to our page which highlight participation in our events or classes.  We love the positive press from social networking!  If you haven’t already, do visit us at www.facebook.com/KimballLibrary.Atkinson.NH and peruse our many albums and see if you can find yourself or family members.  Did you see our recently posted ‘Nerdy Nummies’ album and video?
